The Student Handbook is the official publication of the Student Life Division.

All students are expected to read and understand the contents of the Student Handbook. The Student Handbook is intended to provide information to all Gonzaga University students, including undergraduate, graduate and law students.

The Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), includes many disclosure and reporting requirements. A disclosure requirement is information that an institution of higher education is required to distribute or make available to another party, such as students or employees. A reporting requirement is information submitted to the U.S. Department of Education or other governmental agencies. Disclosure and reporting requirements sometimes overlap. For certain topics, institutions are required to make information available to students or others and to submit information to the Department of Education.
Gonzaga University is committed to providing access to information that will allow consumers such as students, parents, counselors, researchers, and legislators to make informed decisions about postsecondary education. This web page provides a single access point to all federally-mandated reports and disclosures.
