Students that are planning to attend George Fox University and want to be considered for financial aid will need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The information from the FAFSA and from the admission process is the sole determiners of the amount and type of aid that is awarded. The availability of funds is also considered.
The FAFSA cannot be completed or sent in before Jan. 1. George Fox University encourages students to complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after that date.
- Our Title IV Federal School Code is 003194.
When students explore what it will cost to attend George Fox University or any other college remember there is a real difference between the total cost of their education (tuition, living expenses, books, fees, and other expenses) and the amount they're expected to pay. Financial aid is meant to reduce the gap between the two. To make an informed decision, students need to consider the total cost, the amount they are expected to contribute and the amount and type of financial aid that is offered.
Virtually every George Fox student who can demonstrate financial need is awarded funds to assist in meeting the cost of attendance. Need may be met with financial aid, including grants, scholarships, and loans. Whenever federal funds are part of the financial aid package, the total of all aid cannot exceed the need determined by the FAFSA. Exceptions to this rule include the Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, which may be borrowed regardless of need.
Continuation of financial aid requires that the student maintains a good academic standing and maintains satisfactory academic progress. Click here for more information concerning satisfactory academic progress.
