Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I would not recommend this program to perspective students. This program was very unorganized and made it very difficult to know what requirements were expected to graduate. I would recommend researching surrounding universities before making the decision to attend George Fox University. The education received did not match the price that was paid to attend this university. If I had the chance to do it again, I would not.

This program is a joke. It does not prepare a person to teach in any 'real' capacity. My whole cohort suffered an exhausting, disappointing 20 months and came out with a pile of debt. The administration and many teachers consistently gave students conflicting information, changed expectations of students, mismanaged time, and even misspell things on the website. I'm paying money for THIS!? I would NEVER recommend this program to anyone. What a disappointment.

The MAT program is not worth the money. I have never experienced lack of communication or lack of support like I did in this program. With the exception of two professors, my experience was sub-par. My whole cohort suffered through the 20 months we spent at Fox. Consider other schools.The reputation of this program is changing.

Pros: it is fast, I will have my MAT in one year. My teachers are amazing people. Cons: there are hoops to jump through with just about everything. It costs a lot of money, and there isn't any time to work or relax.

Graduation Year: 2015

The education you will receive at George Fox is worth every penny. The faculty knows you by name and cares for each individual student, the education is unlike any other, and it's located in one of the most beautiful states in the country.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

I am enrolled in a hybrid program, participating in an online cohort as well as local class-time. The online portion is extremely well done, and has facilitated a stronger community and stronger class relationships than any in-class courses I have ever taken.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

As a new program, it comes with all the benefits and pitfalls of being brand new. However, the faculty are not all "new", some have extensive experience in academia from other institutions; the others bring valuable experience from real-world PT. GFU is great, and I almost can't see myself anywhere else.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

At the part-time MBA program of George Fox, the faculty has strived to make the program cater toward people living full and busy lives. They have passionate and knowledgeable staff along with a strong alumni foundation and good reputation. My MBA degree from GFU will be a solid asset to my career.
