Student Costs and Payment Options
The University’s cost of providing a Gonzaga education is not borne solely by the student population. The Jesuit community gift, endowment income, and gifts of many types from individuals, firms, and foundations constitute some of the other revenue sources essential for a balanced budget wherein total revenues equal total expenses. However, revenue from student charges constitutes the majority of Gonzaga’s income. Student charges (less verified financial aid) are payable in full in U.S. dollars on a per semester basis, no later than three weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Knowing that payment in full presents a burden for many parents and students, Gonzaga offers two installment plans which cover the academic year and spread payments over a period of eight or ten months. Information is available through the Student Accounts office.
Eight and Ten Month Installment Plans
With each of these payment options, estimated tuition, room, and board expenses for the academic year are set up in equal monthly installments. The plans require an application and fee. There is, however, no interest charged. Verified financial aid is deducted from the total amount due.
The application deadline for the 10 Month Installment Plan is June 1st. Payments begin July 1st and run through the following April.
The application deadline for the 8 Month Installment Plan is August 1st. Payments begin September 1st and run through the following April.
December graduates or students enrolling in the spring semester for the first time should contact Student Accounts for semester payment options.
Students who are admitted to the University after the application deadlines given above may apply within two weeks of their acceptance date.
Note: All charges are payable in U.S. Funds. Student Accounts accepts cash and checks for payment on account. Electronic payment is also available which includes e-Check at no charge to the student and credit card payment through American Express, MasterCard and Discover, with a 2.75% service fee.
