Student Costs and Payment Options
The University’s cost of providing a Gonzaga education is not borne solely by student tuition and fees. The annual Jesuit community gift, endowment income, and gifts of many types from individuals, firms, and foundations constitute some of the other revenue sources essential for a balanced budget.
However, revenue from student charges constitutes most of Gonzaga’s income. Student charges (less verified financial aid) are payable in full in U.S. dollars on a per semester basis, no later than three weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Knowing that payment in full presents a burden for many parents and students, Gonzaga offers two installment plans which cover the academic year and spread payments over a period of eight or ten months.
*Please Note* Beginning with the 2020-2021 academic year, the 8 and 10 month installment plans will no longer be offered.
