  • We encourage all applicants to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Filing the FAFSA may qualify students for other institutional, state, and federal funding. 
  • Washington student residents can also submit the WASFA (Washington Application for State Financial Aid) as soon as possible. As a result of the Washington REAL Hope Act becoming law, applications for state need grants are now accepted. The WAFSA is specifically for low-income, non-citizen students that attended a Washington high school who are unable to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) due to immigration status.
  • Gonzaga's Federal School Code is 003778.
  • The FAFSA will be available starting October 1. We encourage families to submit the FAFSA or WASFA applications by March 1st, or as soon as possible.
