General Education Classes
Learn Alongside Dedicated Adults
Join the adult degree program with as few as 20 semester (30 quarter) transferable credits. Students in the Adult Degree Program take their education seriously. By completing your general education classes at George Fox, you will learn alongside committed students in a time-efficient and cost-effective, adult-learning format.
Each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) is 16 weeks long. We break the semester into two, eight-week sessions. This enables students to take classes in both sessions while making it possible to take just one class at a time. Nearly all classes are three (3) semester credits.
Take a class in session 1 (weeks 1-8), then take a new class in Session 2 (weeks 9-16). Students are encouraged to take more than one class during each session if their schedule allows.
