Part-Time MBA Admissions

COVID-19 and Admissions at George Fox

The George Fox admissions office is taking steps to protect the health of our campus community and prospective students. In accordance with the Oregon governor’s "Stay Home, Save Lives" campaign, admissions counselors are working remotely. While we cannot offer in-person visits for now, admissions counselors are still available by email, phone or video if you have any questions or need assistance.

We are still accepting applications for programs starting this summer and fall. Classes may be offered virtually until in-person classes can safely resume.

If you are applying, please send application materials by email and ask your previous school(s) to send official transcripts electronically directly to George Fox, rather than sending them by mail.

For additional information, visit the university's main COVID-19 response page.

We look forward to connecting with you!

Request Official Electronic Transcripts

Request an official transcript from every regionally accredited college or university where you completed even a single course. Electronic transcripts are preferred for speed and accuracy. They must be sent directly from the institution to admissions@georgefox.edu. If an electronic option is not available, unopened official transcripts can be sent via mail to:

Office of Admissions
George Fox University
414 N Meridian Street #6089
Newberg, OR 97132

One must be from your current supervisor. References must be sent through the online application.

Once Your Application is Complete

If your application is selected by the admissions committee, you will be invited to interview with a group of three to five MBA candidates. Your interview group will be presented with a group problem to solve while the admissions committee observes. No preparation is required. Dress is business casual.

After Acceptance

If you are admitted to the Part-Time MBA program, you are required to submit a $200 enrollment deposit by the date provided by your admissions counselor. This deposit guarantees your place in the program and typically covers the graduation fee applied to your student account in the last semester of your degree program. Please review the Student Accounts website related to the Enrollment Deposit.

After admission, students must complete an accounting e-learning module and digital orientation. The accounting module will provide online tools to learn basic accounting terms, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), and the three main types of financial statements. Students who score a minimum of 75 percent on the pre-test are not required to complete the module. The digital orientation will prepare new students for the start of your MBA journey.
