Academic Information

Nondiscrimination in Education Programs and Activities/Title IX 

Educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, including sexual harassment and sexual violence; sexual orientation; genetic information; race; color; religion; national origin; age; veteran status; and disability in the education programs and activities that they operate. Fox College is subject to these laws and complies fully with them in the enrollment of students, the hiring of faculty and staff, and in all other activities of the College. The Chief Academic Officer, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and may be reached by phone at 708-444-4500, by email at, or in person at 18020 S. Oak Park Ave., Tinley Park, IL 60477, is the Title IX coordinator. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Title IX coordinators or to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights. Students, faculty, and administrative employees are encouraged to bring any complaints or reports of discrimination to the coordinator's attention. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or electronic mail address or by mail to the office address listed for the Title IX coordinator. The matter will be investigated promptly, and both parties will be notified in writing about the outcome of the complaint. Appropriate follow-up will be implemented to assure that no person associated with the college is subjected to unlawful discrimination. Individuals who report discrimination will not be subjected to any retaliation for doing so.

Credit Transfer From Another Institution

Transcripts of work completed at other accredited colleges may be submitted to the Chief Academic Officer for review during the first term of a student's program.  Other documentation may also be required. 

Generally, credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Chief Academic Officer to determine if the course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required at Fox College and the grades received for the courses were "C" or better.  Because programs at Fox College are specifically tailored to career preparation, course credits from other postsecondary schools may not be transferable.  Students who have earned a bachelor's degree from a college or university accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education will be granted credit towards fulfilling Fox College's general education requirements.  A maximum of 25 semester credits will be accepted in transfer for students transferring credit who have less than a bachelor's degree. 

More information is available in the academic catalog



Credit Transfer To Another Institution

The acceptance of credit is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits.  Because programs at Fox College are designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for courses taken at Fox College are not transferable to other institutions.  Neither Fox College nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit.  More information is available in the academic catalog.
