Frequently Asked Questions for Prospective Students

Due to exam dates being canceled, Gonzaga will not require the SAT or ACT for fall 2021 applicants. 


No. You will not be disadvantaged, as we have waived the SAT or ACT requirement for fall 2021 applicants. We will continue with holistic application review, taking into consideration grades, curriculum, activities and involvement, writing, and character.


Gonzaga reviews applications holistically, which means we look at several factors when considering admission.  We will take into account the unique context of spring 2020, and will not hold schedule changes against an applicant.


If a school changes the grading scale to Pass/No Pass or Credit/No Credit, it will not affect a student’s admission to Gonzaga University. 


Gonzaga does not convert “Pass” grades or include it in a cumulative grade point average.


International students are required to submit English proficiency exam scores that meet Gonzaga’s admission requirement.  However, in recognition of the COVID-19 pandemic’s global impact, Gonzaga will accept the Duolingo English Test for summer and fall 2021 applicants. See the International Freshman Application Checklist here.
