Tuition & Financial Aid

College is always an investment, but it’s important to note that our Adult Degree Program (ADP) is offered at a discounted rate.

In fact, at only $499 per credit hour, you will pay less than half of what a traditional undergraduate pays!

Cost per Credit Hour

Adult Degree Program


Traditional Undergraduate


The cost of the degree averages between $17,964 and $38,880. Cost is determined by the number of credits you transfer in. If you transfer in a full associate's degree or 90 semester credits, your total cost will be at the low end of the range.

71% of ADP students receive financial aid through grants and loans. We also offer flexible payment plans for each term. You can find more details about filing the FAFSA and finding loans on the Financial Aid page for adult degree students. Once admitted, your financial aid counselor will be a great resource and partner for navigating the financial aid process.

Beside the enrollment deposit, there are no additional fees for your courses. And most of your textbooks can be accessed for free, saving your money on course materials.

For the most accurate snapshot of your costs, we recommend that you schedule a free transfer review with our admissions team. They'll explain how your credits will transfer and provide a transparent estimate of the costs.

I had a fantastic experience in the Adult Degree Program at George Fox! From start to finish the processes were extremely easy, and everyone made the final decision to follow through very stress-free, which is what I needed. I loved my professors, my cohort, and my classes.
