Take a Load Off (Fulfill General Education Requirements)

Students at George Fox – including incoming new students – can take up to three courses during our summer term. This means that you can split the difference and make sure your fall semester is not overbooked, so you have time to breathe, socialize, and participate in what makes George Fox great – being known. Every credit counts.

If you are nervous about what the fall looks like during this uncertain season – perhaps your spring transition didn’t go so well – be reassured that these online classes have been established for many years, by professors who have refined them specifically for what you need. You are in stable and equipped hands.

Dolla Bills Y’all (Save Money)

Online summer classes are offered at $560 per credit, half the price of our traditional undergraduate classes. Enough said. Who doesn’t want to save money on classes?

Taking these courses could help you graduate and learn more efficiently, saving you even more money in the long run!

Get’r Done (Knock Out Tough Classes with Fewer Distractions and in Less Time)

Online summer classes teach the same concepts as traditional semester classes, but the lessons are condensed to fit within an eight-week term. The classes have been designed for online and have been running effectively for years, and improve every summer. The professors are experienced in every tool that specifically makes online learning successful and engaging. This is not their first rodeo and you are in for a great eight-week ride.

The courses offered present a more intensive, shorter-term curriculum, but in a more relaxed summer setting. If you are hesitant about taking a tough course along with a full schedule in the fall, this offers a great opportunity for you to alleviate some of that pressure.

Get Connected

Our online summer courses are limited to 20 students to make sure you get plenty of interaction. All online summer classes are taught by experienced George Fox faculty, like Jennifer Joy Loop, who cares about your success and growth. She says she “gets to actually hear and see what everyone has to say,” versus, in person, when she only gets “a glimpse from checking in with each group.”

“I feel like I get to know my students more quickly during the online summer courses,” she adds. The faculty are able to stick with you individually to make sure you are on track and doing well. You are known and cared for.
