We are pleased you are interested in attending George Fox University! The following information will help with the admissions process.

An undergraduate applicant must provide the following information before admission is granted:

  1. A completed undergraduate online application (or a hard copy application)
  2. An essay (about 500 words) stating purpose of study
  3. Proof of English ability (official test scores)
  4. High school (or college) transcripts (both in English and applicant's native language)
  5. Declaration of Finance  form and official bank statement

Please give close attention to the following procedure when preparing application data.

Prepare Your Application

All international undergraduate applicants must submit the George Fox undergraduate admission form. You may apply online, which is the easiest and quickest way to apply. Or, download the application form in PDF format, fill out the form, and mail it with other supporting documents to George Fox. 

Provide Statement of Purpose

The applicant must write a 500-word statement describing the purpose and plan of study at George Fox.

Provide Academic Documents

Freshmen applicants or students who have just graduated from high school must submit complete secondary school transcripts or mark sheets and copies of any certificate or diplomas awarded. Providing transcripts only of the senior year will not be considered adequate. Transfer applicants, or students who have completed some college/university course work, must submit official college/university transcripts for each institution attended, both in native language and translated into English, along with any certificates or diplomas awarded.

Transfer of foreign credits can be accepted at George Fox. Any credits earned at a university outside the U.S., which a student wishes to transfer to George Fox, must be evaluated by one of our approved transcript evaluation partners. Transfer credit can be considered for each course in which a student has received a grade of "C" or better. We encourage you to submit the course description at the time of application so we can begin our evaluation process as quickly as possible. Please note, though, that not all of your foreign credits can be transferred and some courses may not be applied toward your degree program at George Fox.

Submit Proof of English Language Proficiency

All undergraduate international students coming to attend George Fox must provide proof of English language proficiency. Undergraduate students may meet this requirement by submitting official test scores from TOEFL, IELTS, iTEP, or Pearson Test of English - Academic (PTE). For direct entry we require a TOEFL score of 70+, an IELTS score of 6.0+, an iTEP score of 3.9+, or a PTE score of 50+. The TOEFL code for George Fox is 4325.
