Does George Fox accept online high school diplomas?
As long as the online high school you're attending is accredited through the U.S. Department of Education or regionally, your diploma will be accepted and viewed by our admissions office the same way as a diploma from a brick-and-mortar high school. If you're not sure about an online school's accreditation, ask them directly or contact us.
You'll want to take a well-rounded course load with a variety of classes in the humanities, sciences, social studies and math. Work with your advisors to be sure that you're completing all the work required and taking the right classes. We recommend taking the ACT or the SAT the first time your junior year or early senior year so that you can retake them later your senior year if you need to.
Chances are, you have plenty of questions about us and university life here. No worries. Everything you need to know is available by checking out this site or contacting one of our admissions counselors. Whether you want to find out about our academic programs, athletics, campus life or the basics of our application requirements, we're here to help. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
If you're still considering options, here are a few tips that may help as you make one of the most important decisions of your life – choosing a college that will transform your life.
Visit as many college campuses as you can. The campus visit is the single most influential factor in deciding where to attend college. If it feels right, it just might be. There are lots of ways to visit a college:
- College campus previews
- Individualized visit
- Visit a friend
Take these questions with you as you visit different colleges.
- What size should my classes be my freshman year? After my freshman year?
- How much is the average financial aid package offer? How much of that average is covered by loans?
- What are the average high school GPA and SAT scores for an incoming freshman?
- Are there any rules or guidelines unique to your college?
- Who should I call when I have more questions?
Keep Grades Up
Your cumulative GPA will help you earn academic scholarships. What you do now matters.
