Schedule Changes

Need to request a schedule change?  Please keep the following in mind before contacting us:

  • SPACE IS EXTREMELY LIMITED!  We have worked days, weeks, and months to get all new students into class schedules that meet degree requirements.  Remember, you are in classes that will fulfill requirements, which may include subjects you do not prefer or care for.  In future semesters, you will have more flexibility to choose courses on your own. This fall, due to the limited availability, we simply cannot consider requests to change classes due to preference of time or professor. As a freshman, you should expect to have classes anywhere between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm. 

  • Federal Law prevents us from speaking with anyone other than the student regarding their academic matters, which includes first semester schedules.  All schedule change requests and conversations must have the student directly involved.  For those who visit in-person, either before, during or after orientation, we will ask parents and family members to wait in our lobby while we meet with the student. 

  • Read through our FAQ's before calling.  Your question may already be answered.

  • Review the Course Table which answers the "Why am I taking this class?" question.

Still have questions or want to request a schedule change?  You can do so before, during or after New Student Orientation. 

Before Orientation (July 25th through August 11th)

Schedule change requests will be taken via phone or email weekdays, July 25th through August 11th.  If you are a local student, you may also come see us by scheduling an appointment at 509-313-4072.  Each student will be treated equally with regard to their course scheduling requests, regardless of how or when you contact us. 

To make your schedule change request, please choose one of the options below and follow the directions.  Please do not contact us multiple times, by multiple means - this slows down our process.  Choose one and be patient.  We will return your message in a timely manner.

By phone: Call us at 509-313-4072 between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm, weekdays, July 25th through August 11th, and an advisor will take your call or return a message within 24 business hours.  

By email: Using your Zagmail account, send us your requests to advise@gonzaga.edu.  Be sure to include your name, ID number, a phone number where we can reach you if we have questions, and a detailed description of what change you are requesting.  An advisor will respond to your email request within 48 business hours.   

In person: Call 509-313-4072 to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
