Commonly Asked Financial Aid Questions

*Click on the questions to see the answers.

To determine the amount of financial aid we can offer you, George Fox will take into account your Expected Family Contribution as determined by your FAFSA. Because tuition costs differ from college to college, often students who don't qualify for aid at one school may qualify for aid at another. You are strongly encouraged to file a FAFSA and go through the financial aid process.

In most cases, need based aid is not affected by the date you submit your FAFSA. You may have missed competitive scholarship opportunities, but need based aid will still be available to you.

Federal Stafford Loans are available to students that are enrolled at least half-time (6+ credits). Also, the Federal Pell Grant is available to students with a qualifying Expected Family Contribution from FAFSA even if enrolled only part time. George Fox does not offer institutional aid for students attending less than full time (12+ credits)

No. Although you can attend George Fox and another institution at the same time, you may only receive financial aid from one institution at a time.

Although competitive scholarships may no longer be available, merit awards and need-based aid still apply no matter when you submit an application. However, the earlier you apply the better.

Financial aid packages will begin going out in December. To make sure yours is accurate, make sure to file the FAFSA as soon as it's available in October the year prior to your transfer.
