Those interested in enrolling as undergraduate students at George Fox University for the 2012-13 academic year are invited to take advantage of the institution’s Early Action program and apply with no application fee. To be eligible, a student must submit a completed application by Thursday, Dec. 1.
The program is a nonbinding agreement for students who have selected George Fox as one of their top two college choices. Students may complete an application for admission online at apply.georgefox.edu.
Early Action applicants will not be charged the $40 application fee and will be guaranteed an admission decision and notification by Thursday, Dec. 22. In addition, all Early Action students will be eligible to indicate a desire to be considered for the university’s Scholarship Competition, scheduled Feb. 10-11, 2012.
All other applications for admission should be submitted by Feb. 1 (March 1 for transfer students), the university’s regular decision deadline, to receive maximum financial aid consideration.
Students are encouraged to apply early to avoid the possibility of being placed on a wait list. This fall, thanks to solid retention numbers and an incoming undergraduate class of nearly 600, the university broke an enrollment record for the 23rd time in 25 years, topping 3,500 students (3,519) for the first time in school history.
