Tuition & Other Costs for Current Undergraduates
George Fox students receive one of the top values among private universities in the Northwest, according to Money magazine. The publication ranked George Fox as the top Christian college in Oregon in its “Best Colleges for your Money” issue, based on “educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes.” Likewise, Washington Monthly placed the school ahead of all other Christian universities in the Northwest in its “Best Bang for the Buck” rankings, which, in part, took into account student loan default and graduation rates.
