does the equation G=-nFE still apply to nonstandard values? It only specifies the standard values on the equation sheet.

The equation delta Go = -nFEo applies to standard conditions.

The equation delta G = -nFE applies to non-standard conditions.

Will we lose points on the test or final if we forget to include the degree sign?

Standard will have that naught or little circle next to G and E. It means standard conditions (solutions are 1M, gases are 1bar or 1atm, solids and liquids are in pure form, temp is 25 degrees celsius). If it isn't standard then there is no circle.

Yes because they are different and mean different things.
Its the equivalent of saying your altitude is 2000 ft when you are at sea level.
