Be Prepared For Orientation

 
 

New & Transfer Undergrads

One of the first things you do at the undergraduate new & transfer student orientation is pick up your ZAGCARD. 

Keys to success for Orientation Day

Submit an approved photo and government ID by the photo deadline

It is very important to submit an approved photo by the photo deadline so your card is ready for you on Orientation Day.  Save yourself time and submit an approved photo as early as possible.  

Photo deadlines per term and upload instructions can be found on the Submit your Photo page.  We also encourage everyone to review the Be Ready With Your Valid Government ID page to understand what we are looking for when we verify your identity.

If I show up early, can I pick my card up before Orientation?

All undergraduate new and transfer student ZAGCARDs are handed out at orientation for all students except those who are on the pre-approved pre-orientation move-in list with Housing.  If you are not on that list, then you will have to wait to pick up your card. After orientation, we will make arrangements with any students who have not yet picked up their card.

Returning Undergrads from Leave of Absence

Students who are returning to campus after a leave of absence and still have their ZAGCARD will be able to continue using their current card. For those who are coming back from an extended leave of absence and no longer have a ZAGCARD, fill out the previous student ZAGCARD request form.

Law School

Law students starting in the summer: We will email Law School students who are enrolled for summer law classes approximately two weeks before the start of term.  The email will communicate instructions for receiving their ZAGCARD. 

Law School students starting in the fall:  We will deliver the ZAGCARDs to the Law School where they will distribute the cards to the new students at the Law School orientation.  It is very important that you upload an approved photo and government ID by the photo deadline date so your ZAGCARD is ready for you. Photo deadlines per term and upload instructions can be found on the Submit your Photo page.

New law school students that were attending Gonzaga as an undergrad and already have a ZAGCARD may continue to use their current card.  If you no longer have your current card and are new to the Law School program, fill out the previous student ZAGCARD request form.

Main Campus Grad Student

Main campus grad students will need their card to access secured doors.  Beginning approximately two weeks before the start of term, we will begin printing cards and communicating to students via email with instructions for getting their ZAGCARD.

New grad students who were attending Gonzaga as an undergrad and already have a ZAGCARD may continue to use their current card.  If you no longer have your current card and are a new grad student, fill out the previous student ZAGCARD request form.

Virtual Campus Grad Student

Virtual campus grad students will have their cards processed for mailing beginning approximately one week before the start of the term.  Be sure to have your current mailing address up-to-date with the university.  The ZAGCARD will be needed for students who come to campus for an immersion.
