Freshman Registration

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! Educate yourself on Gonzaga's degree requirements and programs offered. This will help you complete the Academic Interest Survey. Click on the following links to learn more, then proceed to Step Two:

  • Gonzaga University Core Curriculum 
  • Academic Majors and Programs
  • Academic Policy and Degree Information via Online Undergraduate Catalogue (Your catalogue is under production and will be available online summer 2017.

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 information. The survey is online and available now through May 31st. Please complete this step as soon as possible.

Step Three

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

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.
