Bridging the Gap

"Bridging the Gap" between the cost to attend George Fox and financial aid is the responsibility of the student.  Each semester the balance owed needs to be taken care of before the student can advance to the next semester. 

Graduate students will receive a Payment Selection Form from the Student Financial Services office upon payment of their Enrollment Deposit.  If the Monthly Payment Plan is selected, the student's eligible tuition and fees for each semester will be broken out into four equal monthly installments (if enrolled in plan prior to start of semester), due on the 15th of each month. All Monthly Payment Plans are subject to a $35 per semester installment set up fee.

The following list shows some options available to students to assist in “bridging the gap”.

Grad PLUS Loans

After exhausting financial aid options, Graduate students can apply for the Grad PLUS Loan.  This loan is offered through Direct Loans.  For more information or to apply, students can go online to www.studentloans.gov.  George Fox will be notified once the Grad PLUS as been approved.

Alternative Loans

Students can apply for an alternative loan.  These are private loans through a variety of different banks and credit unions. George Fox University will certify loans from any bank or credit union, but students can view and compare private loan options from lenders previously used by George Fox students. Contact Johanna Schweitzer in the Financial Aid Office for more information.
