1. Describe 2-3 of your greatest strengths, whether related to personal, work, academic, or other areas.

2. Your GPA or SAT/ACT scores are lower than George Fox University’s general admission requirements. What factors contributed to your performance as measured by your GPA or SAT/ACT scores? 
3. Articulate academic or professional goals you have established for yourself and give specific examples of how you plan to achieve them.
4. Describe a significant life challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to address this challenge.
5. What types of support will be helpful to ensure your success during the first semester of college? These might include specific information about academic expectations, guidance about learning strategies or time management, meetings with advisors or professors, help managing financial responsibilities, counseling around personal concerns, or other types of support.

6. The Academic Success Program is a structured program that includes weekly meetings with a Success Coach and unique guidance on course selection for the first semester. Discuss whether you think this would be helpful for you.  Note: Students in the Academic Success Program wait at least one semester before enrolling in Engineering, Biology, or Chemistry courses. As a result, Engineering, Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Nursing will likely require more than four years to complete.
