Frequently Asked Questions

  • How Do I Pay?

  • When Do I Pay?

    • If you are paying per semester (one lump sum), payment is due one week prior to the first day of the semester
    • If you have been approved for a monthly plan, payment is due on the 15th of each month (August-November for fall and January-April for spring)
    • You can prepay without penalty
NOTE: Let us know how you intend to pay by completing the required Payment Selection Form.
  • What is Federal Student Employment?

  • Why isn't my Federal Student Employment on my Payment Estimator?

    • Student earnings from on-campus employment are paid directly to the student. To include these funds on your Payment Estimator, please secure an on-campus job and complete the Automatic Student Payroll Deduction Form.
  • Why isn't my external/outside scholarship on my Payment Estimator?

    • Great question! The most common reason is it hasn't been reported in MyGeorgeFox. Once it has been reported, your Payment Estimator can be updated.
  • What do I do if my scholarship requires semester grades or a proof of enrollment?

  • Why am I being charged health insurance?

    • George Fox requires its full-time students be covered by medical insurance. To opt out, complete the Health Insurance Form/Waiver in your MyGeorgeFox Tasks tile. If you opt out, please be prepared to submit your current policy information and allow 48 hours for charges to be adjusted.
  • Why do I need a guarantor on my Payment Selection Form?

    • We ask for a guarantor because we want to know who is standing with you in this financial obligation
    • This is common with most financial agreements
    • It increases your options for payment
  • Can someone else make payments online for me with out giving them my George Fox password?
