One of the Nation’s Top Online Bachelor’s Programs

George Fox Digital: Adult Degree Programs is ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s “Best Online Bachelor’s Programs” (2021-22).

Designed for Working Adults

Adult degree programs are part-time accelerated bachelor’s degree-completion programs specifically designed to fit the schedules of working adults.

Students in a major take online classes for 16 to 20 consecutive months, and most students take only one class at a time.

Unlike other online degree programs, classes in a major are all taken with the same group of no more than 16 students called a cohort – peers who get to know each other and provide ongoing support and community.

Students who need to can take general education and elective courses online before they’re ready to begin their majors. Credits from our online certificate programs can also count toward your elective credits.

Someone to Walk with You, Start to Finish

From the very beginning, you'll be supported every step of the way with full transparency about the cost and time required to earn your degree. Your admissions counselor will create a clear and complete academic plan for you before you make any commitment. Request a free transcript credit evaluation to find out:

  • How your credits will transfer in
  • When you’ll graduate
  • How much it will cost

There are no hidden prerequisites, no hidden fees, and no hidden online class requirements. Payment plans are available, and financial aid is available for all incoming students who qualify.

Likewise, we know returning to school can be stressful. Unlike universities where students are left to decipher enrollment codes and calculate credits on their own, our adult learners are supported by an enrollment counselor to walk alongside them – answering questions, providing guidance, and offering encouragement. You'll start strong and finish strong with us.
