Support During Remote Learning

View a brief video message regarding support. For university announcements and policy, see the George Fox University Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response page.

Technology, Distance Learning, & Support Options

Check out the university's Resources for Remote Education page for information about technology use and access, recommendations for getting started, and other support options. Tools for Starting Remote Education can help with more effective participation in remote education.

Connect with Someone

If you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed and aren’t sure how to move forward, please reach out to someone. Below are a few people and offices who can provide support; if you already have a relationship with someone, start there. 

You can also call the George Fox University switchboard at 503-538-8383 to be directed to the right person to answer your specific questions. Not sure who to contact? Contact Rick Muthiah at rmuthiah@georgefox.edu or 503-554-2314.

Other Suggestions and Information

The George Fox Student Emergency Fund will provide one-time financial assistance to students who have experienced an unexpected financial hardship due to the coronavirus and its impact on the university. Financial assistance may be available for expenses related to housing, distance learning, or loss of an off-campus job. To apply, please fill out this form. Questions can be directed to studentlife@georgefox.edu.

Watch out for email scams regarding internship/job interviews 

Some institutions have raised concern about scams involving unexpected emails advertising a job or internship offer. These scams typically ask for your contact information and schedule. Check out this information from Handshake about how to assess whether a job posting or internship is legitimate.
  • Use a computer to log into Fox360.georgefox.edu with your university credentials (the site doesn't do well on mobile devices).
  • Click the "Ask for Help" icon, and complete the form.
  • A staff member from an appropriate office will contact you.
  • If you don't have access to a computer and need assistance, email Rick Muthiah at rmuthiah@georgefox.edu

Do all you can to learn effectively in this new reality. Set aside time every day to work on your assignments; make learning and completing academic work a high priority. Consider following your regular schedule as if you were on campus. If you have a MWF class at 9 a.m., "go to class" on MWF at 9 a.m., whether to watch a video lecture, do homework, connect with classmates, or otherwise.

Check out a few more Helpful Resources for Remote Learning put together by the ARC staff. We know that this will be a challenge for many of you – just do the best you can under whatever your current circumstances are!

Communicate with professors in your courses. Ask to speak with professors if you are having difficulty in a class. They are also adjusting to this new reality, so be patient if they don’t respond immediately; then follow up if you haven’t heard back in 24 hours. If they are holding online office hours, that is a great time to connect with them if you can.
Check out this list of ARC services and other remote tutoring options. Consultants at the ARC are available for remote writing and academic coaching consultations. Follow the instructions for Scheduling through TutorTrac or email the_arc@georgefox.edu for help scheduling appointments. Ask professors if subject-specific tutoring is available for any of your classes.

If any of your courses are electives (not counting for anything in your major) or are classes that you are taking to meet a general education or minor requirement, consider making a request to switch the grading in that class from a letter grade to a pass/no pass grade.

The university has loosened requirements for this option for this semester only, and you can make this change for up to two current classes by completing this form. Please note: students in certain majors (e.g. nursing, social work, education) or students who are planning to apply for graduate school may need to have letter grades in certain general education classes on their transcripts.

Before you elect a pass/no pass grade for a course, please connect with your academic advisor or CAP coach to confirm your choice.

The Registrar’s Office has a COVID-19 Resource page with information about changing up to two non-major classes from graded courses to Pass/No Pass. Note that Pass/No Pass classes count for credit but do not affect your GPA. Contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@georgefox.edu) if you have questions about the Pass/No Pass process

If a professor indicates it is not possible for you to pass a class at this point (a D in general education or elective courses, a C- in most major courses), consider withdrawing from the class. Speak with your CAP Coach about the possible effects on your future course schedule; CAP Coaches can also share the process for petitioning to withdraw from a class.

The COVID-19 Resource page includes a link to the Academic Petition form students can use to request to withdraw from a class after the official deadline for withdrawing. For this semester only, students who complete the petition form by April 26 will be automatically granted late withdrawal from the designated class. Note that a withdrawal does not affect GPA, so withdrawing is usually better than getting an F for a class. Communicate with your CAP coach before withdrawing from a course; there are some occasions when a student should not withdraw.

Office and Department Updates

Do you have books checked out from University Libraries? See the Library’s page with information about returning books; details are provided for those who are graduating and those who are returning next Fall. If you’re planning to return, you can ask to have due dates extended. If you’re not planning to return, you can drop off books or see instructions for mailing back your books; if you need help paying for shipping, you can contact the Library to receive a prepaid mailing label.
Rental textbook returns are approaching soon! Students will be receiving rental reminder emails with a link to a prepaid shipping label to send books back to the store. When you ship rental books, please include your first and last name, phone number, email, and patron ID (listed in your rental email). This information is crucial for us to process your rental return. If you are unable to mail your books or have other questions, contact Paige Jacobs at pjacobs@georgefox.edu or call the store at 503-554-2540.

If you are concerned about your grade in a course, check with your professor to see if you’re getting the grade you need (or want) and what you can do to end the semester well. If you are concerned your grade will lower your GPA, consider requesting a change to Pass/No Pass (P/NP) for courses not required for your major. Neither a “Pass” nor a “No Pass” will affect your GPA. For example, if you have a 3.0 GPA, a C would bring down your GPA, but a Pass would not affect your GPA. If you are on the border between passing and not passing, consider the P/NP option since if you don’t pass, it won’t lower your GPA. The Registrar’s Office has a COVID-19 Resource page with information about changing up to two non-major classes from graded courses to Pass/No Pass. Contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@georgefox.edu) if you have questions about the Pass/No Pass process. This coming Sunday, April 26, is the last day to request a change to Pass/No Pass.

If you are certain you cannot pass a class, confirm your grade with your professor, then touch base with your CAP coach about completing the Academic Petition form to withdraw from a course. A “W” on your transcript is probably better than a “NP” (Not Passing) if you are considering graduate school. For this semester only, students who complete the petition form by the end of the day Sunday, April 26, will be automatically granted late withdrawal from the designated class. Note that a withdrawal does not affect GPA, so withdrawing is usually better than getting an F for a class. Communicate with your CAP coach before withdrawing from a course; there are some occasions when a student should not withdraw. Those receiving Veteran benefits should confirm whether withdrawing from a course will have a negative effect on those benefits.

Student Accounts is working individually with students who have concerns about tuition payments for Spring 2020 or Fall 2020; contact your Student Accounts account specialist if you want to discuss options for managing payments.

The registrar’s office COVID-19 Resource page has information about changing up to two non-major classes from graded courses to Pass/No Pass.

We know learning in this new environment may be challenging, but know that all of us at the libraries are committed to helping you be successful and finish the term well! Below we highlight four key ways we can support you today. We encourage you to also visit our dedicated webpage for additional support.

  1. Need a particular book, textbook or film? Send details to researchhelp@georgefox.edu and a librarian will begin the search for you! We also have Chromebooks available for pick-up at the Murdock Library (email circadmin@georgefox.edu to schedule a pick-up time).
  2. Working on a research paper or project? Need help finding good sources? Librarians are waiting to help! Make an appointment to meet with them online. If you need a primary source or an answer to a George Fox history question, connect with our archivist.
  3. Running into an issue or want to learn more about Zoom, FoxTALE or VoiceThread? Explore our guides or contact Digital Learning at digitallearning@georgefox.edu or 503-554-6128.
  4. Do you want to enjoy something different, artistic, beautiful or creative? Feed your soul with films, concerts, science and newly available books on the Free Resources During COVID-19 page.
You can schedule an appointment with your CAP Coach to finalize or change your schedule for fall/spring 2020-21; or schedule a career planning appointment with a Career Coach. This is a good time to work on your resume and LinkedIn for when the economy returns. Please watch your email for Career Corner updates regarding companies that are continuing their hiring processes virtually and for virtual job or internship openings (working from home).
If you would like help with a paper or support on how to stay organized and study for tests as finals get closer, book a remote Zoom appointment at arcschedule.georgefox.edu. Be sure to schedule early, because appointments fill up fast this time of year. Check out this helpful resource with tips on developing better concentration while studying.

Emails to Students

Below are resource emails that have been sent to students. 

Dear students,

Congratulations on getting to the end of regular classes! Just one more week and finals will also be a memory. I have one primary message in today’s email: Sunday, April 26 is the last day to switch a course to Pass/No Pass and to request to withdraw from courses.

Changing a course to Pass/No Pass

If you are concerned about your grade in a course, check with your professor to see if you're getting the grade you need (or want) and what you can do to end the semester well. If you are concerned your grade will lower your GPA, consider requesting a change to Pass/No Pass (P/NP) for courses not required for your major. Neither a “Pass” nor a “No Pass” will affect your GPA. For example, if you have a 3.0 GPA, a C would bring down your GPA, but a Pass would not affect your GPA. If you are on the border between passing and not passing, consider the P/NP option since if you don’t pass, it won’t lower your GPA. The Registrar’s Office has a COVID-19 Resource page with information about changing up to two non-major classes from graded courses to Pass/No Pass. Contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@georgefox.edu) if you have questions about the Pass/No Pass process. This coming Sunday, April 26, is the last day to request a change to Pass/No Pass.

Requesting to Withdraw from a course

If you are certain you cannot pass a class, confirm your grade with your professor, then touch base with your CAP coach about completing the Academic Petition form to withdraw from a course. A “W” on your transcript is probably better than a “NP” (Not Passing) if you are considering graduate school. For this semester only, students who complete the petition form by the end of the day Sunday, April 26, will be automatically granted late withdrawal from the designated class. Note that a withdrawal does not affect GPA, so withdrawing is usually better than getting an F for a class. Communicate with your CAP coach before withdrawing from a course; there are some occasions when a student should not withdraw. Those receiving Veteran benefits should confirm whether withdrawing from a course will have a negative effect on those benefits.

Given the timing, you might have to make a decision without input from your CAP Coaches, faculty advisor, or the Registrar’s Office. If you choose to change to Pass/No Pass or to withdraw from a course without feedback from your CAP Coach, follow up with your CAP Coach as soon as you can.

Contact us if you need assistance

Contact someone at the University if you are having difficulty of any sort and we will do our best to assist you. Another way to get support is to complete a Fox360 self-referral form

  • Use a computer to log into Fox360.georgefox.edu with your university credentials (the site doesn’t work well on mobile devices).

  • Click the “Ask for Help” icon, and complete the form. 

  • A staff member from an appropriate office will contact you. 

  • If you don’t have access to a computer and need assistance, email me at rmuthiah@georgefox.edu.

We are praying for you

People across campus are praying for you. University Pastors are going through a list of all students, praying for them and trying to touch base with each of you. Many employees have signed up to pray daily for five students, and many of us are also praying for students we have relationships with. Let us know if you have specific issues you would like us to be praying about.

All of us who work at George Fox are cheering you on, excited to see you finish the semester, and available to support you. May God’s grace be with you as you head into this weekend and on to finals week.

Peace be with you.

Dear students,

We’ve made it to the last week of classes! After this week, we just have finals week, then summer break begins. This coming Sunday, April 26, is an important date for Pass/No Pass and late withdrawal petitions; be sure to read more below.

If you haven’t already done so, take a few minutes to look over these websites with information about ending the semester remotely:

Many employees have signed up to pray daily for five students, and many of us are also praying for students we have relationships with. Let us know if you have specific issues you would like us to be praying about.

Yesterday at two worship services I attended by video, we read the passage from John 20 that describes Jesus appearing to the disciples while they were gathered behind locked doors. Jesus’ message to these isolated, confused, bewildered disciples: “Peace be with you!” I pray the presence of Christ is particularly evident in the midst of these difficult times, and that for some periods of time, whether long or short, you are experiencing moments of peace, wholeness, and fulfillment. 

Peace be with you.

Dear Students,

As we continue with the remote learning experience, I have a couple items to share. We realize this has been a challenging process for many of you, and have heard from students who are feeling overwhelmed by changes to class format, altered assignments, a flood of emails, and uncertainty about how the semester will end.

My first message will always be this: You are not stuck on your own! We are available to assist you and want to help you end this semester well. The Support During Remote Learning page lists a number of offices you can contact for support, and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response includes information about requesting emergency funding from the Student Emergency Fund if you are in financial difficulty.

Another way to get support is to complete a Fox360 self-referral form

  • Use a computer to log into Fox360.georgefox.edu with your university credentials (the site doesn’t work well on mobile devices).
  • Click the “Ask for Help” icon, and complete the form.

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14)

Peace be with you.

First (and most importantly), know that you are not alone

If you haven’t already done so, look through these Resources for Remote Education for topics related to technology, learning at a distance, and other support options.

If you’re feeling stuck or overwhelmed and aren’t sure how to move forward, please reach out to someone. Below are a few people and offices who can provide support; if you already have a relationship with someone, start there. You can also call the George Fox University switchboard (503-538-8383) to be directed to the right person to answer your specific questions.

If you’re not sure who to contact, you’re welcome to contact me (Rick Muthiah, rmuthiah@georgefox.edu, 503-554-2314) or check my appointment schedule (bit.ly/Appt_w_Rick) for a phone or video meeting time that works for you. 

Remember that it is better to ask for help now than to wait until finals week.

Below are a few other suggestions:

  • Do all you can to learn effectively in this new reality. Set aside time every day to work on your assignments; make learning and completing academic work a high priority.

Dear students,


We are concluding a spring break unlike any other in George Fox history. The next five weeks also will be filled with new challenges, but we want you to know you are not alone. George Fox University - and all the faculty and staff who were with you on campus earlier this month - are still here for you and are determined to provide you the best experience possible in this new environment.


What’s next?

On Monday (March 30), George Fox will resume instruction in remote fashion. There will be no in-person instruction. We now have fewer than 100 students living on campus and they are not permitted to gather in groups. All George Fox buildings are closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, although Stevens Center will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays for students (card access only) who need internet access (please practice social distancing). Some library materials may be available for physical check out. 


As you return to your virtual classrooms, we are providing you some guidance that will help you begin this new journey. Here are four things to know before your classes resume on Monday:


  1. You need to check your email every day… ideally multiple times. Your professors will be communicating expectations and plans for coursework through email.

  2. Check FoxTALE every day. This is where coursework will be housed, assignments will be turned in, and grades will be recorded.

  3. You may need to do some prep work to get set up and ready for video conferencing via Zoom

  4. We’ve compiled the resources below to help you through the transition from in-class to at-home.
