Start your online application.

Admissions Process: Submit your application in advance of the final deadline, to allow time for all transcripts and letters of recommendation to arrive. Once your application is complete, it will be submitted to the faculty for review. Your Admissions Counselor can give you an estimate of how long the application review process can take. If your application is incomplete by the final deadline, we will work with you to complete it for the next available term.

Priority Deadline: Some of our programs offer a priority deadline. If you submit your application by the priority deadline, you can waive the $50 application fee by entering the code FREEAPP on the last page of the online application. Your application will be reviewed before the term is full. Some of our program specific scholarships are reviewed first for students who meet the priority deadline.

When do classes start?
For many of our programs we offer 5 different start dates throughout the year. We have classes that begin in Fall (with the traditional start date at the end of August or beginning of September), October, January, March, and May. This allows you to apply to begin classes at the time that is right for you. Please connect with your Admissions Counselor to discuss the different options. Please note: We have a few cohort model programs that only admit students to begin once a year. MATL starts classes in May. MASAA begins classes in Fall.

Obtaining my Master’s from Gonzaga gave me the knowledge and confidence to begin my career in Marketing and Communication Consulting. I am so happy with the direction my life has taken since then.”

michaelballardtestimonialWhen I think of “Inner Zag,” I think it is more than just a catch-phrase. I believe it means the inward ability to inspire others as a true servant for the human family, each and every one of us. The strength to ignite brilliant encouragement for others is paramount to finding our inner Zag. When I meet fellow Zags in the community, I cannot help but smile because I know they’re part of my Gonzaga family.”
