Gonzaga Access Pledge

The Gonzaga Access Pledge is Gonzaga's full-tuition commitment to bridge the gap for college funding.

The Gonzaga Access Pledge provides grant and scholarship aid to cover the cost of tuition for first-year students throughout Washington state who qualify for the Federal Pell Grant*. The Federal Pell Grant is a financial aid program awarded to students who show exceptional financial need. Students do not need to pay back grants or scholarships. 

To be eligible for the Gonzaga Access Pledge:

  • Be a WA state resident
  • Be admitted to Gonzaga as first-year student
  • Submit a FAFSA (most students) or WASFA (students who cannot file a FAFSA).
  • Be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant*

*Undocumented Washington residents can be eligible for GAP even if not receiving a Pell Grant. Undocumented students must submit WASFA to be eligible for GAP.

Get Started:


  • Students who receive the Gonzaga Access Pledge will be notified when they receive their financial aid offer.
