Fall 2022 admission to SCAD: Did you know?

While SCAD accepts new applications throughout the year, and there is no deadline to apply, we are already receiving a large volume of applications for fall quarter 2022. We encourage your students to start the application process online (please share the code EDU2122 to waive our US$100 application fee). SCAD also is reviewing qualified students for scholarship opportunities.

SCAD also is waiving the SAT/ACT test requirement for Fall 2022 admission consideration. Students can submit test scores if available, but applications from students without test scores also will be considered. The lack of test scores will not impact SCAD's evaluation of a student's application or scholarship consideration.

Please also let your students know that SCAD is open for on-campus tours and SCAD Day open houses, where they can discover SCAD's inspiring learning spaces and chat with admission staff. Learn more online.

We look forward to continuing to work with you and your students in the coming months and years! Questions? Please contact Lara Langston, director of educator outreach, at llangsto@scad.edu.

Gonzaga has decided to offer test-optional admission indefinitely. Students who apply without a test will have the same access to admission, automatic merit scholarships, direct admission to nursing and engineering, special scholarships, and the Honors Program. We will place more weight on the evaluation of grades, curriculum, and writing in the absence of scores. For more details, please review our Test-Optional FAQ page.

Another important note is we only offer one Regular Decision application deadline of December 1. Our decision was intended to alleviate student stress and provide our applicants with equal access to Gonzaga, which is especially important for students applying direct admission to nursing. Students who apply by December 1 receive an admission decision by late February.

Striving for accessibility, Gonzaga provides competitive financial aid packages to admitted students. We are proud to announce the establishment of our Magis Commitment program, whereby Gonzaga is committed to providing grant and scholarship aid to cover the cost of tuition for first-year students throughout Washington state who qualify for the Federal Pell Grant. To be eligible, students must be admitted to Gonzaga as first-year students, have a permanent address in the state of WA, submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.

Gonzaga University welcomes all applicants and seeks a diverse student body.
