Pre-requisite Policy

Pre-requisite classes provide the necessary foundations for students to be successful in their graduate level coursework.  Students who have recently completed a business degree will have the majority of their prerequisites fulfilled. Additionally, students with extensive work experience in prerequisite subjects may be able to get some courses waived. Prerequisites do NOT need to be completed in order to gain admission to the program.

Each student works with their advisor individually to assess their prerequisites and determine the most time and cost effective way to get them fulfilled. Gonzaga offers a series of combination courses and CLEP proficiency exams to expedite this process.

For an individual prerequisite evaluation, please contact Kristen Paul, Prospective Student Advisor, at
