A Special Study or an Independent Study can be designed to either meet a course requirement which will not be available for you to take due to a conflict or a way you would be allowed to study something that really interests you. This also works to meet additional course requirements necessary for graduation.
The first step is to find a professor willing to oversee your independent study. Then either pick up a form from the Registrar's Office or download the appropriate form. The form requires various signatures and works as a contract with your instructor of what will be required to earn the credits assigned.
It is important to finish this process during the add/drop period of the semester you intend to take the class. A late registration fee will be incurred after the first few days of the semester.
Employers are looking to hire recruits with "real world" experience. Internships are available to equip you with that experience. Our Career Services office can offer help in planning your internship experience. A professor on campus or even your major department may have additional ideas.
Once you have a location and a George Fox professor to oversee your internship, you will need to submit a field experience form with the IDEA Center.

When you begin college you have a number of choices to make and it is very easy to take on more than you can handle. Just like it is important to eat a balanced diet, the activities in which you participate need to reflect balance as well. Remember, college is about a complete educational experience which includes your learning in the classroom as well as key activities and relationships outside the classroom. However, too much of either does not reflect a healthy lifestyle.
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) exists to help you work through some of these decisions related to your coursework. The ARC offers tutoring and various workshops throughout the year on such subjects as test taking strategies and time management.
Health and Counseling Services is available to help with many of your health concerns and questions.
