Tuition & Other Costs for 2017-18 Undergraduates

George Fox students receive one of the top values among private universities in the Northwest, according to Money magazine. The publication ranked George Fox as the top Christian college in Oregon in its “Best Colleges for your Money” issue, based on “educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes.” Likewise, Washington Monthly ranks George Fox among the top colleges and universities in the West in providing the most value for the price. George Fox ranked fourth among West Coast-based governing-member schools in the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities in the publication’s “Best Bang for the Buck” 2017 ranking, which, in part, took into account student loan default and graduation rates.
