Things to Consider
- Compare the value of the programs you considering. Cost shouldn’t be the sole factor in choosing a program, though it is an important one. Consider personal fit, professional outcomes, and the quality and reputation of your options.
- Graduate tuition is billed differently than undergraduate tuition. You will only be expected to pay for the credits you are enrolled in each term (plus any fees).
- Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually to be eligible. Gonzaga University’s school code is 003778.
- Graduate students are eligible to receive up to $20,500 in federal loans each academic year.
Our Counseling programs offer graduate assistantships, and each program track determines the criteria and recipients for each offer. You will be able to apply for an assistantship directly through the department during the interview portion of the application process.
- The state of Washington has created an opportunity through the Washington State Behavioral Health Workforce Development Initiative called the Ballmer Behavioral Health Scholarship. Gonzaga University is one of 13 universities participating in this statewide effort. Students participating in the initiative receive grants, up to $51,500, to offset master’s degree expenses by agreeing to serve three years in an approved Washington state community behavioral health agency or tribal health center following their graduation. The initiative also provides expert career placement and mentoring support. If you are interested in this option, you can find more information here.
- Gonzaga alumni are eligible for the Alumni Graduate Education Scholarship, which is equal to 15% off tuition rates.
- Gonzaga offers scholarships for international students. For details go to our International Graduate Student Scholarship webpage.
- AmeriCorps members receive a $1,000 scholarship each year they meet enrollment eligibility within a Gonzaga graduate program
- It is also a good idea to search for outside scholarships. Free scholarship database websites are available online. Check our Financial Aid page for more resources, or our database of outside scholarships.
Graduate loans are not based on income, and can help to finance both your education and living expenses. Borrowing options typically are divided into two categories: federal student loans and private, alternative loans.
Gonzaga University offers payment plans to assist you in financing your education. Typical options offered by Student Accounts include paying your balance in full each semester or paying your balance in monthly installments to make your payments more manageable.
These may exist through community organizations. Check with service organizations like the Knights of Columbus, Rotary Club, and Elks Club. Other possible sponsors include employers, parent/spouse employers, trade associations, banks, credit unions, corporations, schools, and churches.
Loan Forgiveness Options
Depending on the route your career takes you, loan forgiveness programs may become an opportunity. Your federal loans may qualify through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program (more info at www.studentaid.ed.gov). Also, your future employer may offer this opportunity.
