International Student Services at George Fox University


International Student Affairs serves as a resource for advising and assisting international students in the George Fox University community. The university recognizes that international students bring with them not only unique needs but also welcomed contributions. The International Student Affairs office seeks to help students adjust to the campus community and to help the campus community develop sensitivity in relating to international students.

The administrator of this office encourages and assists international students in participating in the academic and social life of the university and in the exploration of the surrounding American culture. In addition, this office advises students in complying with U.S. immigration regulations. The staff members of this office are friends and advocates of the international student and avail themselves to any matter for which the student may have a concern.
