Summer Session

Summer session is the perfect time to catch up on requirements and take core courses and electives that won’t fit your schedule during the traditional academic year. It’s also a prime time to focus on just one or two courses at a time, or to take courses ahead of time to assure study abroad doesn’t set you behind. Undergraduates can take advantage of a discounted tuition rate during the summer, and both housing and employment opportunities are available for students of all levels.

Gonzaga University offers summer courses through the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, the School of Education, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Law, the MATESL program, the School of Nursing and Human Physiology and the School of Professional Studies.

Courses are offered in three sessions. The dates for Summer 2014 are:

  • First Summer, May 19 to June 27
  • Second Summer, June 30 to August 8
  • Full Summer, from May 19 to August 8


All courses are designed to meet diverse student interests and needs. Offerings range from undergraduate to graduate to doctoral, with classroom and online options as well as field studies and faculty-led study abroad programs.

Students from other colleges and universities are welcome to take summer session courses at Gonzaga that may fulfill requirements but may not be available at their home campuses. Such credits can typically be transferred to their home institution. Note that acceptance to and/or enrollment in a Gonzaga Summer Session course does not imply admission to one of our degree programs. See the admissions section of this catalogue for more information on applying for a degree program.

Graduate students will typically find several classes applicable to their program of study and in some instances will find complete academic programs offered during summer session. Courses, institutes, and workshops are also available for anyone interested in continuing their education.

Details on courses, dates, costs, and registration are available on the summer sessions website, http://www.gonzaga.edu/summer, by emailing summer@gonzaga.edu or by calling 509-313-5873.
