How to register a formal student complaint

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

While most student concerns and complaints can and should be resolved informally, there is a formal general complaint procedure described in the “Support for Students” section of the Undergraduate Student Handbook as well as on the Graduate/DPS Policies page of the website.

Note that these procedures cover complaints of a general nature and do not supersede specific policies involving special cases such as grade appeals, sexual harassment, etc., which are covered elsewhere in the Student Handbook, catalog or Graduate/DPS Policies.

For more information, contact the student life department (studentlife@georgefox.edu).

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

If you have purchased a car in Oregon this past summer or fall, and have yet to register it with the State of Oregon DMV, please do so before Dec. 31, as registration and title fees are rising on Jan. 1!

If it has already been 30 days since you’ve purchased a vehicle and you have yet to register it, the DMV adds a $25 late fee. If it has been more than 60 days since you purchased the vehicle and you haven’t registered it, the late fee is $50 plus the registration fee and title fee. So, save yourself some money and get your cars registered within 29 days after purchase, and take care of it before year’s end.
