ONLINE

Change your life. Change the world.

You can receive an online degree from many universities. Put your diploma in a frame, hang it on the wall and update your resume. But at Gonzaga University Online, in addition to a respected degree, you’ll receive something that you can’t simply hang on your wall or add to your resume. You’ll receive an understanding of life that goes beyond your career. A connection to something bigger than will ever fit in your resume. You’ll receive a clear awareness of your place in the world and your responsibility to others – while that part of your education may not ever increase your income, we think you’ll discover that it’s the best investment that you’ve ever made.

Unlike many online universities, Gonzaga University Online enables students to put down roots as part of a 125-year-old, world-changing tradition. As a Zag, each graduate’s degree will be respected and their experience appreciated. No matter where students live and work, they are just seconds away from being connected to their home on campus. That connection remains with each graduate wherever they go and whatever they do in life. Once a student discovers their Inner Zag, they’re a Zag forever.

Through these immersions the student gains a physical connection to the university, which enhances their education and their personal development.

Competitive tuition

Gonzaga University is an elite institution with a very competitive admission process. This type of education doesn’t come inexpensively, but online students find that our tuition costs are competitive with similar institutions and that the experience and education they receive delivers far beyond the cost of admission.

Student-focused teaching

Again, Gonzaga University Online is founded on the Jesuit ethos of “people for others”. This is vividly lived out in the student-focused, customized and flexible teaching styles of our faculty and in the format of our online programs. At Gonzaga, students receive what they are here to learn, through servant leadership and respect for the individual. Your
education will be unlike anyone else’s.

Practical application

As most Gonzaga University Online students are currently employed while they earn their advanced degree, our programs and faculty deliver an education that can be immediately put to work even while studies are being completed. This practical application is encouraged and serves as experiential learning, which enhances the value of the curriculum and process.
