Readmission to the Adult Degree Program

You will need to reapply to the adult degree program if you:

  • Were on a Leave of Absence and did not attend classes after the one-year limit for a Leave of Absence
  • Were not on a Leave of Absence and skipped a semester of taking classes at George Fox University, resulting in a passive withdrawal from the university
  • Did not complete your general education, elective, or major classes and stopped attending the university

Readmission Policies

A student must maintain consecutive semester enrollment to remain under the catalog year requirements of their original admission year/semester. A readmitted student without consecutive enrollment will be required to complete the degree requirements of the current academic year. While a student may have completed some of the requirements of their degree when originally enrolled at George Fox, those requirements may no longer be satisfied due to changes in the general education, elective, or major requirements of the degrees the university currently offers. 

If a student must reapply to the adult degree program (per the criteria listed above), the student may have to complete additional general education, elective, and/or major classes in order to satisfy the catalog requirements of the degrees that the university currently offers.

The following requirement changes may affect students reapplying to the adult degree program:

  • $200 Enrollment Deposit - Students reapplying to the university who must complete additional classes in a major, and who did not previously submit a $200 enrollment deposit, will be required to do so. The only exception by which a reapplying student does not need to submit this deposit is if a student was previously charged for and paid the $105 graduation fee.
  • Returning From Academic Suspension - After one or more semesters have elapsed, the student may apply for readmission, and if approved for readmittance after a review by the Admissions Committee, will reenter provisionally. The student will be required to take either ASPD 185 Academic Tutorial (1 credit) or ASPD 280 Becoming an Exceptional Student (3 credits), depending on the individual student's needs.

Each reapplying student has a unique situation that will be evaluated by an enrollment counselor in conjunction with recommendations and direction from faculty. Not all requirements apply to every reapplying student.

Enrollment in general education and/or major classes is dependent upon class availability and class-size limits. Completing the readmission process does not guarantee enrollment into specific/needed courses.
