Freshman Registration at Gonzaga University

Welcome, class of 2021, to Gonzaga University!

The professional advisors in Academic Advising & Assistance (AAA) play a very important role in your transition to University life.  Our mission, to "support students in pursuit of their academic success," begins with the construction of your first Gonzaga University class schedule. 

Here's how it works:

Step One: Be informed!  Your learning experience begins now - Brief yourself on Gonzaga's degree requirements and programs offered. This will help you complete the Academic Interest Survey in May!  Click on the following links to learn more:
Step Two: (THIS ONE IS REALLY IMPORTANT!!!) - Complete the online Academic Interest Survey (AIS).

This survey provides us with vital information needed to enroll you accurately for your first semester courses.  We cannot register you for classes without this info.  The survey will be online by May 1st - watch your Zagmail for an announcement when we are ready to go live. Please complete this step no later than May 31st, and as soon as possible.  

Step Three (us): Be patient while we work.

Through July, the professional advisors in AAA will schedule you for your first semester courses.  We do this using our years of advising experience and expertise, along with the information you provided in your AIS, as well as other important information including, but not limited to, course requirements for majors, minors, and special programs (Honors, Debate, Athletics, etc.), your academic history, standardized test scores,and placement scores if taken.  This process takes time, but we will have it done by August 1st. We will notify you via email when your schedules are officially complete and done.  Until then, if you have a question, look at the FAQs section, as many of your questions will already be answered, and remember, schedules are a work in progress until we tell you otherwise.

Step Four: How to request changes to your schedule.

Students who wish to make changes to their schedules will have an opportunity to do so after August 1st. To learn more about the process, including specific dates and times, visit our Schedule Changes page.

Best of luck to you in the completion of your senior year!  Watch your zagmail account (YES - you really do need to start checking this account NOW) for more information coming soon.
