This page, and all associated with it, are under construction, and will be up and available in April, 2015.  If you have questions about the enrollment process at Gonzaga for new students, please call us at 509-313-4072.  Thank you!


Welcome to Gonzaga University, class of 2019!

The advisors in the Office of Academic Advising & Assistance (AAA) are ready and excited to begin supporting you as a Gonzaga University student!

Our mission is to "Support Students in their Pursuit for Academic Success."  You've committed to us, now it's our turn to show this same level of investment in you through your first semester course registration, and beyond. You will be registered for your first-semester by advisors in the AAA office over the summer, but your part is going on RIGHT NOW!

We want you to start exploring the requirements of a Gonzaga degree, as well as the different majors, minors and programs we offer.  The more informed you are now, the better able you will be when answering questions in the Academic Interest Survey.  You can find academic information in the online Undergraduate catalogue at, or by visiting a few pages here on our website.  For core requirements (classes all students take at some point in their Gonzaga career), click here.  For a brief description of each major we offer, as well as a sampling of courses you may have in your first semester schedule if you select this major, click here and browse away.

In April, an online Academic Interest Survey will be made available to you on our website.  This survey is your opportunity to tell us what you want to study in your first semester, what major you have chosen, as well as answer placement questions regarding foreign language, mathematics and English. We cannot register you for classes without this survey being complete, so get it done as soon as possible. We won't lock you into any major or class you select, but we need a starting point, so please don't delay.  The survey will close on May 31st. 

Here's what's to come, once you submit your survey:

  • In June and July, using the information you provided, together with your academic history and profile, we schedule you for your first semester courses. We have been in close communication with Academic Deans and Departments throughout the spring in preparation for your arrival, and are well-versed in the requirements of any Gonzaga major/minor/program. After all, we are academic advisors, which makes knowing curriculum inside and out, our specialty.
  • By August 1st, we will notify you via email that your first semester schedule is complete and ready to view.  Once you have your schedule, use our tips and tools (delivered in that mailing) to learn more about your classes, your major, and your college/school.
  • If you aren't happy with your schedule, or have changed your mind since completing the survey, you will have an opportunity to make changes during Schedule Change Times in August. To learn more about the Schedule Change process, including specific dates/times, please click here.

Best of luck to you in the completion of your senior year! We look forward to working with you over the next few months as you start your academic Gonzaga journey. If, at any point in the registration process, you have questions, please ask! You can call us (800.965.9223) or send us an email (
