Paying for Your Education
Tuition bills will be sent to the student’s Gonzaga Zagmail account only.
It is important that students continue to settle their student accounts before the beginning of each term to prevent any further delay in disbursement. Follow the instructions on your bill for information on how to complete this important step.
If you are planning on using financial aid to pay for all or a portion of your tuition, you must e-mail email@example.com with your plan of payment before class begins every semester.

Online Degree Refund Policy
The U.S. Department of Education has sent guidelines to schools offering online degrees to students using federal financial aid in the form of student loans. New regulations advise schools to check academic participation in distance courses prior to disbursing funds as a way to prevent fraud. Consequently, initial disbursement of all online graduate student loans will not occur until 2 weeks after the start of each term. If you are expecting a refund from student loans, plan to receive payment at least 3 weeks after the start of the term and budget accordingly.
Gonzaga’s Student Accounts Office will credit the student’s account after the first module of a course has been completed (2 weeks after the start of the term). Departments will monitor each student’s participation in the module before loan disbursement will take place. It is your responsibility to participate in your Blackboard course as soon as it is available. Student Accounts will then forward any refunds to the student.
