Confirmation Deposit

If you intend to enroll at Gonzaga University in the fall, please submit a confirmation deposit of $400 by May 1.  (If admitted off the waitlist, you have until May 17 to submit your confirmation deposit and reply card.)  This deposit secures your place in the class and initiates your course registration.

You have the option of either sending in a check to the Office of Admission along with the Deposit Reply Card  or paying online at ZAGWEB. Please follow these directions for PAYING THE DEPOSIT ONLINE.  

Please note that the tuition deposit is non-refundable unless a written cancellation and request for a refund is received by the Dean of Admission on or before June 1.

Students accepted for Spring Semester need to submit the Confirmation Deposit and Deposit Reply Card by December 1.

Financial Aid & Scholarships


Learn more about Gonzaga's financial aid philosophy and scholarships you may be eligible for.

Gonzaga requires all students applying for need-based financial aid to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. To make Gonzaga' s priority awarding deadline you must submit the FAFSA by February 1st . 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 on time. Gonzaga University requires students to file a FAFSA to receive any additional aid beyond the merit scholarship awarded by the Admission Office. Therefore, it is to your advantage to file the FAFSA to see what other institutional, state, and federal funding you might qualify for.

FAFSA website - http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/

Send Final Official Transcripts


Freshmen 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.  Freshmen 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 Academic 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.
