University Sets Undergraduate Enrollment Record, Tops 4,000 Total Students

A record number of traditional undergraduate students has propelled George Fox past the 4,000-student mark for a second straight year, with 4,080 students enrolling this fall.

Bolstered by the arrival of 628 freshmen – a number that matched last year’s record total – and the largest traditional undergraduate enrollment in school history (2,414), George Fox broke the 4,000-student barrier again after topping the mark for the first time last fall. Rounding out the university’s student body are 1,382 graduate and continuing education students and 284 in the adult degree program.

Of the 628 incoming freshmen, 121 are first-generation college students and 173 are students of color. Overall, total enrollment has increased more than seven-fold since 1986, when 549 students attended.
