Each semester (fall, spring and summer) is 16 weeks long. We break the semester into two eight-week sessions. This enables you to take classes in both sessions while making it possible to take just one class at a time. Nearly all classes are three semester credits.

Take a class in Session 1 (weeks 1-8), then take a new class in Session 2 (weeks 9-16). Students are encouraged to take more than one class during each session if their schedule allows.

Your transferable coursework will apply to the categories below or will help satisfy elective credit. You must have completed some college-level credits to be eligible to take general education classes at George Fox University.
