Some Gonzaga Global students are admitted directly into undergraduate or graduate programs. and others are admitted to a Pathway program based on language proficiency. Pathway students participate in Intensive English Program (IEP) language courses in the English Language Center (ELC) as well as specific courses in the Core, or their program of study. Shorelight-recruited students that are enrolled as undergraduate or graduate students receive wrap-around student services support from the Gonzaga Global team during their first year on campus. Those students that are enrolled in a Pathway program are non-matriculated students and receive wrap-around student services support until they are matriculated. These students are also supported by ELC staff if they are in the IEP or Pathways. All Gonzaga Global students are supported by Gonzaga’s International Students and Scholar Services (ISSS) staff, Gonzaga Global staff, and faculty academic advisors.
Gonzaga Global students are fully Gonzaga students, and just like for all students, we seek to care for them holistically. We want all our international students to be successful and healthy, those recruited as Gonzaga Global students as well as those who come to us through other avenues. ISSS and Gonzaga Global staff are located in the Center for Global Engagement (CGE).
