George Fox University


George Fox is the oldest Christian university in Oregon. More than 125 years ago, evangelical Quaker pioneers helped settle the rich and fruitful Chehalem Valley of Oregon, which is now known for its premier vineyards.


Today, George Fox is Oregon's nationally recognized Christian university, providing students with personal attention, global opportunities to learn and serve, and a support community that encourages academic rigor and spiritual growth.


"Earning while learning" is a financial necessity for some and an integral part of the university experience for others. George Fox employs over 750 students every semester. In addition to the income, students have found that campus employment:

  • Provides valuable work experience
  • Teaches organizational and communication skills, and much more
  • Can result in mentoring relationships

Student services

Here in Student Accounts, we recognize the challenges students and their families face in financing the cost of attending college, and are committed to assisting families through the process. We will walk with students and their families through each step of their journey to graduation. Our mission is to serve each individual with compassion and respect.
