Gonzaga requires all students applying for need-based financial aid to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. The FAFSA is available starting October 1. We encourage families to submit the FAFSA as soon as possible. Our FAFSA filing priority consideration dates are December 1 for first-year students and March 1 for transfer students, but you can still file after those dates. Gonzaga’s FAFSA code is 003778.
Regardless of whether or not you think you will qualify for Federal Aid, it is important to complete the FAFSA. It is to your advantage to file the FAFSA to see what other institutional, state, and federal funding for which you might qualify.
Gonzaga will send you a complete financial aid package by mid-March if you applied by December 1. Learn how to navigate your financial aid offer.
If you applied for incoming first-year scholarships, you will receive a decision by early March.
If you plan to live on campus during the fall, you must submit the Residential Living Agreement and $200 Advance Room Deposit by May 1. You have the option of either sending in a check to the Office of Housing and Residence Life or paying the deposit online. First and Second year students are required to live on campus unless you meet the exemption requirements.
The Advance Room Deposit converts to a damage deposit upon enrollment and will be returned when the student leaves the residence hall system if no damages are incurred. This deposit is non-refundable unless a written cancellation and request for refund is received by the Dean of Admission by August 1st. Refunds for students who enroll at Gonzaga but decide to live off campus will be reviewed on a case-by case basis.
If you plan to live off-campus with immediate family in the Spokane area, you must meet the requirements outlined in the Gonzaga University Residence Requirement document and submit the associated exemption request form in ZagLiving to Housing by May 1st.
Be sure to check out our Residence Hall website to view our housing options.
Early completion of the above requirement is strongly encouraged.

Other Important Information
Review our Running Start and Credit by Exam policies to see how credit(s) will transfer to Gonzaga. If you have not done so already, send official scores to Gonzaga in order for the credit to be posted.
First-year students must request that a final, official high school transcript be sent to the Office of Admission. This transcript should cover eight semesters or twelve trimesters of work and have a graduation date posted. First-year students who have completed collegiate work, Advanced Placement exams, or International Baccalaureate exams during high school must have official transcripts and examination records forwarded to the Office of Admission. Advanced standing credit is determined by the Provost & Senior Vice President’s Office.
Our offers of admission are conditional and contingent upon the successful and satisfactory completion of all academic work in progress. Final academic transcripts will be carefully reviewed. Your final transcript must be received before you arrive on campus for fall/spring in order to ensure your enrollment at Gonzaga.
The Office of Academic Advising and Assistance registers all new incoming students for their first semester. New students are encouraged to explore and familiarize themselves with the academic programs offered at Gonzaga University.
