Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
I would say so. I am very fortunate to be here, and I probably would not be able to come if it were not for the generous contributions of my family members. It is a expensive school, but the Lord provided for me to come here. Academics are taken seriously but, you gain so much more than an education from coming here. Also, there is new motivation for getting good grades when you (or your family) are the ones who pays for it. There are countless amounts of opportunities available to be a part of through on campus clubs. If this is the right school for you, there will be a way to come here, whether it be through financial aid, or the generosity of others.

I will have to say that some of the expenses at George Fox are a bit on the high side. You do get an awesome education, great food, and wonderful living areas, but it is a little pricey. I guess it just depends on you! I do not come from a wealthy family myself, and I know I will have to be paying back college loans for awhile, but there are also many opportunities for scholarships and grants from the school itself. It is a private, Christian college, and for everything they provide I guess the price is reasonable.
Abigail from Canby, OR
It's a very expensive school, but they offer a great deal of financial aid. Other universities didn't offer me enough financial aid to make college affordable, but George Fox gave me $28,000 in grants and scholarships. This is a great school, and more affordable than most people think it is.
Corey from Grants Pass, OR
Although GFU can be fairly expensive, I would count every penny to be worth it. Always keep your eye open for financial aid, and keep in contact with your financial aid counselor.
Megan from Medford, OR
At George Fox University you never have to worry about not getting help. From helpful professors, the Academic Resource Center in the library, and special tutoring sessions from current students, there is hardly any room to struggle at this University. There is help at every corner on this campus. The professors are ALWAYS there for you, and are always easily accessible. It's obvious this University strives for the best, and they don't offer anything less than that. Every cent spent at GFU, is worth it.

george fox is expensive, but when all is said and done ( note: file your fafsa!) it is as much or just slightly more than a state school charging in-state tuition. with that in mind, george fox is most definitely, exceedingly worth every penny. students can learn ways to save money and the school is overall accommodating and understanding about financial difficulties.
Isabella from Newberg, OR
George Fox is very expensive but they do offer financial aid. The food cost is decent and there are a variety of choices but it is so expensive. The dorms are also very spendy.
Sandy from Newberg, OR
It isn't cheep but I am getting a great education form a university that is internationally recognized as one of the best. I think this will be important as I apply for my Masters and work abroad.
Kelsie from Bremerton, WA
Fox is expensive. Really expensive. But I LOVE it here. I would pay it over and over again to get the experiences, knowledge, and relationships I'm making. The campus is small enough to always know someone, but big enough to always meet new people. The low student-to-teacher ratio pays off when you can see a teacher you had for a semester 2 years ago, and they still remember your name and that joke in class.
Dana from Harrisburg, OR
Like most private and Christian universities, Fox is really expensive. Most people can get a pretty decent amount in scholarships, though, so that helps. But even with the high cost, Fox is worth it. It's worth it to me to live on campus, to be with the people here, to learn from the professors here, to pull all-nighters with my classmates that are half studying and half goofing off, to start out undecided in my major and find something that I think would be worth spending my life on that I didn't know I could do before. I'd pay for it again.
