Individuals interested in enrolling as undergraduate students at George Fox University for the 2011-12 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 Wednesday, 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 (http://www.georgefox.edu/admission/how-to-apply.html).
Early Action applicants will not be charged the $40 application fee and will be guaranteed an admission decision and notification by Wednesday, Dec. 15. In addition, all Early Action students will be eligible to indicate a desire to be considered for the university's Scholarship Competition, scheduled Feb. 11-12, 2011.
All other applications for admission should be submitted by Feb. 1 (March 1 for transfer students), the university's priority application 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, the university resorted to creating an undergraduate wait list for the first time in school history, as a record 655 new traditional undergraduate students enrolled. That helped boost the university's overall enrollment to a record 3,484 students. More information on the university and its admissions process is available at the university's undergraduate admissions site at yourlife.georgefox.edu or by calling the undergraduate admissions office at 503-554-2240.
