Student Perspectives

Not all ADP programs are created equal ...

Ninety-five percent of our adult degree program graduates rated their George Fox experience as "good" or "excellent" in a recent survey.

What our students are saying ...

"Excellent experience all the way from the first meeting with a counselor to graduation. Unbeatable educational support. This was far above and beyond the normal adult degree struggle."


"The satellite campus is convenient to those who live in the Portland and Vancouver areas. The flexibility of being able to take classes online as well as intensives made all the difference for me. The round-the-clock support from educators is unmatched, and they really really care about you."


Shaun Davis

When a fire destroyed Shaun Davis' family home, faculty, staff and fellow students from her ADP cohort rallied around her on a personal and spiritual level that paved the way for her success.

“This is actually my third adult degree program. George Fox felt more professional than the others I’ve attended, which treated me as if I was just an old person still in college. Here, I was treated as an actual professional and working adult.”

“At George Fox, you will learn beyond ‘what’ in the classroom. You will learn ‘how’ and ‘why’ and apply it as you progress. You will make connections, network and create life-long relationships that are priceless. If you have a career goal, or you hit a ceiling in your career that requires a degree to move on, finish your degree.”

“I’m a stay-at-home dad, and driving somewhere else multiple times a week didn’t seem very reasonable as I’m taking care of two little ones. I came here, met with a counselor, and was welcomed by a nice environment and atmosphere. It’s been a super positive experience!”

“One of the big reasons I chose to come to George Fox was because it’s affordable. I don't do loans, so I looked at my budget and said, ‘I can do this.’ The evening classes really appealed to me. I was able to work into my schedule one night a week off, so it was very doable to attend class!”
