We are excited to welcome you into Gonzaga’s Graduate School of Business! Below you will find important information for all new students. Please read the information carefully, and contact us at 509-313-7044 if you have any questions.
NOTE: ALL GRADUATE BUSINESS STUDENTS MUST MAINTAIN A 3.0 GPA TO GRADUATE
The MBA, M.Acc, & MS.Tax Monthly Newsletter is the best way to stay connected to the program. It features important announcements, class information, upcoming events, and job opportunities. The newsletter is updated once a month but can be accessed any time at http://blogs.gonzaga.edu/gsbstudents/.
If you are not receiving the newsletter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ZAGWEB: Your resource for course registration and up-to-date course offerings. Please set up an appointment with your advisor in advance of registration to secure an available advising slot. CLICK HERE to watch a short video introduction to Zagweb.
To Add or Drop a Course: Students should consult the MBA, M.Acc & MS.Tax Monthly Newsletter for ADD/DROP deadlines and information. Typically a student will have one week from the first day of class to ADD/DROP a course (remove a course from your transcript with no grade assigned, and tuition is reimbursed). After that he/she can WITHDRAW (course shows on your transcript with a W grade but does not impact their GPA, and no tuition reimbursed). In the event that you need to WITHDRAW from a class, consult your advisor. Proper paperwork must be processed for both dropping and withdrawing from courses. The forms can be found on the registrars’ website.
Courses that are CLOSED: If a course is closed, you can email the professor to see if he/she will allow you to register. The professor must email your advisor to get permission. You must then email the CRN and your GU ID to your advisor to be registered.
Prerequisite Policy for Registration in 600 Level Courses: MBA, M.Acc, & MS.Tax students cannot register for 600 level courses unless they have successfully completed the appropriate prerequisite course or CLEP exam. If you are taking the prerequisite course the semester before the 600 level course, we can accept an email from the professor of the course once midterms (major exams) have been completed. This email must state that you are in good standing (receiving a B or better). We can then register you for the 600 level course. The professor must email us your final grade immediately upon completion of the course, and an official transcript must also be mailed (if applicable). If you do not receive a C or better in the prerequisite course, you will be dropped from the 600 level course. For more information on pre-requisites, please click here.
CLEP: For some prerequisite requirement, CLEP or preficiency exams are available at Gonzaga University School of Business. Contact the Graduate Advisor to discuss options.
Financial Aid: is available to graduate students, and requires you to fill out a FAFSA. CLICK HERE to watch a short video introduction to Financial Aid. For more information, go to Gonzaga’s financial aid website. We also offer scholarships and Graduate Assistantships through the Graduate School of Business. You can find the applications for scholarships and Graduate Assistantships on our tuition & financial aid webpage.
- Graduate Assistantships are an excellent way for students to work with faculty and staff in the School of Business while earning $16/hour. Students are partnered with faculty and staff based on their interests and skillsets. Most assistantships are for 5-12 hours per week.
Zagmail– GU Email
Your GU email account, Zagmail, is very important. Professors and Graduate School Staff use Zagmail as your primary contact. You are responsible for all information sent to Zagmail. After you register for classes, we can request your Zagmail account. Once your account is created, we will email you your Gonzaga email address and instructions for setting your password.
CLICK HERE to watch a short video about setting up your Zagmail account.
Please note: Gonzaga has had issues with the blocking/junk-mail functions of non-GU email accounts such as Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc. If you forward your Zagmail to any of these accounts, you may not receive important (and official) emails from Gonzaga.
Your GU ID acts as your library card and is required for many general uses at Gonzaga, including sporting events. To obtain your ID Card you must be registered for classes and have your payment plan arranged. You can go to Student Accounts in College Hall room 024. Be advised offices on campus may close for lunch.
Student Introduction Training: Login to Atomic Learning to access an online video training series for students. You will need to log in with your student email address and password.
This page also provides a number of informational links to learn more about different areas of Blackboard.
When you register for classes on Zagweb, you are automatically registered for the corresponding courses on Blackboard.
NOTE: Not all classes will be on Blackboard as professors have to turn on their Blackboard site manually. If you do not see your course via Blackboard, please contact your professor directly.
