Building a First Year Schedule

The following guidelines are recommendations for building a schedule with your advisor for your first year at George Fox:

  1. Your Writing/Communication requirements should be fulfilled during your freshman year. You should plan to fulfill your writing requirement one semester and communication requirement the other. 3 credits each, fall and spring semester.
  2. Select a section of BIBL 100, Bible Survey for fall or spring. 4 credits. (If you wish, you may take both BIBL 101 (fall) and BIBL 102 (spring) instead of BIBL 100. 6 credits.)
  3. Select major requirements or prerequisite courses that need to be taken the freshman year (see your advisor for more information and specific major requirements).
  4. Select one or two courses from Humanities general education courses for each semester. 3-6 credits, fall and/or spring semester.
  5. Select one or two courses from Science/Social Science/Math for each semester. 3-6 credits, fall and/or spring semester.
  6. Select a Freshman Seminar course. 1 credit, fall semester.
  7. Other courses such as HHPA activity courses or applied music classes may be selected to total 15-16 credits.
Total credit hours per semester = 15-16 credits
