Tuition & Financing

Tuition

  • $1,050 per credit

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).
  • Graduate students are eligible to receive up to $20,500 in federal loans each academic year. 
  • Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually to be eligible. Gonzaga University’s school code is 003778.

Financing Options

Assistantships

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.

Scholarships

Loans

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.

Payment Plans

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.

Outside Avenues

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.

Our Admissions Counselors can talk with you about the various ways to fund your education.
