Apply now for tuition exchange for fall 2020

Thursday, September 19th, 2019

The fall 2020 application for tuition exchange at participating universities is now open to undergraduate dependents of eligible employees.

Tuition exchange is a competitive scholarship process for attendance at participating universities other than George Fox. This is different than tuition remission, which is an employee benefit for eligible employees and their dependents who desire to attend George Fox University. Tuition remission enrollment applications and deadlines come from Human Resources. 

For details about the Tuition Exchange Program and eligibility, please review this informational brochure and the employee handbook sections 4.8.1 and 4.9.

If you meet the outlined eligibility requirements, please submit your dependent’s information on this form.

Employees who currently have dependents receiving tuition exchange do not need to resubmit their dependent’s information. Nothing further is required for current awardees at this time.

Questions can be directed to the university’s tuition exchange officer, Janelle Freitag, at jfreitag@georgefox.edu.
