International Students

International Students have three options for admission to Gonzaga University School of Law:

Students with an international undergraduate degree in law may be eligible to transfer some of their undergraduate law credits to Gonzaga and complete a J.D. degree in two years or less, still reserving summers for legal work experience. Students with any other undergraduate degree may apply for admission to the 3-year traditional program or our accelerated 2-year J.D. program.

Financial Aid for International Students

Gonzaga University will review international applicants for scholarships and grants. Be aware that:

  • The only full-tuition scholarship for which international students may apply is the Thomas More Scholarship
  • We do not provide financial assistance for living expenses
  • Upon your admission, we will send you an I-20 form

Support for International Students

Contact Gonzaga University’s International Student Programs office for more about the campus international students community and English language services.

You will need to secure a U.S. visa if admitted to Gonzaga University School of Law. To begin this process, admitted international students must complete a Financial Declaration form (below) and return it to Gonzaga University’s office on International Students & Scholar Services (ISSS), with the required supporting financial documentation requested on the form. The ISSS office cannot provide a Form I-20 to you until it receives these materials.

For any questions on the visa process, please contact:
