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:

Throughout the summer: Check your email accounts and read/respond!

Communication is so important to the process of enrolling you - just as much as you need to be informed, we also need information from you.  So please, check your email accounts daily and read/respond to messages from

You should all receive information regarding your Gonzaga email account in the postal mail 7-10 days after paying your confirmation deposit.  Your Gonzaga email is the official means of communication the University will use to send you important information.  As soon as you get set up information in the mail, get into your account and start checking this email on a regular, daily, basis.  

Step One: Educate yourself on Gonzaga's degree requirements and programs.

We made it easy for you by putting the important details in a video.  You must watch this video and answer the knowledge check questions throughout in order to gain access to the Academic Interest Survey.  

Step Two: Complete the online Academic Interest Survey (AIS).

The AIS provides us with vital information needed to enroll you accurately for your first semester courses. We cannot register you without it! The survey link is at the end of the Video, in Step Two above.  Please allow yourself enough time to view the video and answer the questions (10-15 minutes), complete the AIS (15-45 minutes), and any follow-up assessments by May 31st to avoid registration delays.

Step Three: Be patient while we work.

This summer the professional advisors in AAA will schedule you for your first semester courses. We do this using our advising expertise, along with the information you provide in the AIS and, if applicable, placement assessments.  We have a lot of information to decipher and consider when scheduling the incoming class. The process takes time, because we want to make sure it's done well!  We will have your schedule finalized no later than August 1st, and will notify you via email. Until then, your schedule will be subject to change as we balance the competing demands and scheduling intricacies of registering 1,200+ individual students.  If you have a question, check the FAQs first.  Still have questions? Contact us. You will have an opportunity to request changes to your schedules after August 1st.
