Cost of Attendance | Gonzaga University
What does it cost to attend Gonzaga?
Figuring out your expenses starts with determining the total cost of your attendance for one academic year. Besides calculating obvious costs such as tuition, fees, room and board, you should add estimated costs for books, personal expenses and travel.
The Financial Aid Office reviews the average costs of each of these items every year and, using that figure, establishes a “budget” for its students. The budget varies depending upon whether a student is living on campus, off campus or at home with his or her parents. Although it is impossible to know precisely what an individual student’s exact cost of attendance will be, the budget we establish for determining financial need attempts to consider most variable costs. The Out-of-Pocket Cost Worksheet can help you estimate your expenses. This is a good way of budgeting expenses and determining the types of costs for which you will need to plan.

The weekend offers prospective students the opportunity to experience Gonzaga’s academic programs and campus climate. Participating students spend a night in residence halls with student hosts. There is also a parent program.
You can also schedule a personalized visit to the university, which needs to be reserved in advance.
Preview days allow prospective students to spend 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on campus, getting to know the admissions staff, current students, and faculty members. There are seven to eight preview days offered each year and are available in the fall, winter and spring. Preview days include a breakfast with speakers, an interactive student panel discussion, a financial aid session for parents and family members, a campus tour with school ambassadors, a catered lunch, and an academic information session in the student’s area of academic interest.
All students who apply for admission are considered automatically for several merit scholarships. For freshman who qualify, scholarships range from $2,500 to $14,000 per year and are guaranteed for all four years for students who maintain good academic standing. Criteria for the merit scholarships include high school grade point average, SAT or ACT scores, extracurricular activities, recommendations, application essay, and difficulty of high school curriculum.
National Merit Finalists who name Gonzaga as their first choice college can qualify for the university’s National Merit Award, which is $6,250 per year for all four years. In addition, students who participate in Girls State or Boys State can qualify for the organization’s scholarships of $500. Four students are chosen from the states of Alaska, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.
12 of its own institutional scholarships are offered, including the Joseph M. Cataldo S.J. Scholarships of $5,000, the Charlotte Y. Martin Scholarships of $5,000, and the Ignation Leaders Scholarships of $5,000.
The university’s on-campus work-study program is available to all eligible freshmen and non-Washington State residents in a variety of campus departments. The award is based on financial need as determined by the student’s federal Free Application for Student Assistance (FAFSA)form.

The Austrian capital Vienna (photo of the city below) is always crowded, noisy from a large crowd of people. And this is not surprising. The population of Vienna is large – more than 1,867,580 inhabitants. And if you take into account the suburban areas, then you get almost 2.6 million people, and this is already a significant figure, since it makes up 25 percent of the total population of the country. In their reviews, tourists note the concentration of Vienna’s attractions in the city center.You cannot get around them on your own in one day.
By right of the capital, Vienna is the concentration of the political, economic and cultural center. The language of the city of Vienna (the population of which was indicated above) is German.
This beautiful city, like the whole country as a whole, constantly occupies the top lines in the ratings of the most highly developed places in the world.
Indeed, the population of Vienna can be proud of their city, since, according to statistics, people can afford, regardless of profession, to go on vacation several times a year to any place in the world, and go to an exotic country where the prices for tickets are sufficient high.They can buy a car, the amount of which exceeds half a million euros.
For residents of Vienna, it is the norm to comply with legislative measures, and in return they receive very stable social guarantees from the government, the list of which includes various social assistance, substantial payments for children, support for the unemployed, and for pensioners – a large pension.
History of the city
What is the history of this beautiful capital? The above indicated the population of the city of Vienna. In which country is this capital located? In the Austrian Republic, a state from the central part of Europe.What interesting things is known about the history of his capital?
Vienna is a luxurious city with a huge number of palaces and stately squares. The streets in Vienna are truly picturesque, each with a twist. This city is considered to be a place that always remains thoughtful, cheerful and very cozy.
From the scientific literature, you can learn about the fact that hunters of the Paleolithic period lived in the vicinity of Vienna. These considerations support the findings that have been made. They indicate that a separate tribe lived on Mount Leopold before the arrival of the Romans.
In the first century AD, an outpost – Vindobona, which belonged to the 15th Roman legion, began to be built on the territory of modern Vienna. By the end of the 5th century, the Roman soldiers left the city, which was inhabited by the Avar and other tribes.
The city has suffered invasions of enemies and military destruction many times. At the end of the 15th century, as a result of the Austro-Hungarian war, the Hungarians became the masters of the city. In 1529 to 1683 the Turks made several attempts to conquer the Viennese lands. But the locals and brave warriors made every effort to expel the strangers from their borders.
1938 was marked for Vienna by the fact that Austria joined Nazi Germany. As a result, Nazi ideology spread in the city.
In 1945 the Red Army managed to expel the troops from the city. The well-known monument in the center of Schwarzberg reminds of this.
Unfortunately, Vienna, like Berlin, was divided into several zones of occupation, and thus Great Britain and France placed their people there. This state of affairs lasted 10 years, and already on May 15, 1955, an agreement was signed between the countries, which stated that foreign troops must leave Austria and return its sovereignty.
After this agreement was signed, hardworking Austrians began to rebuild their country’s economy. They looked at everything that happened with humor and optimism and were confident that they could take successful places in Europe.
Today the city is considered a densely populated large center. Vienna’s area and population are in an ideal ratio – almost 100 people / km 2 .
In which country is the city of Vienna? It is very important to know, because the policy of the state always affects the infrastructure of the city.There are many different shops in the capital. They all work on weekdays from nine in the morning to six in the evening, and close on weekends.
In these stores you can buy clothes and shoes. There are many branded items in stores that will appeal to any customer.
Products and alcoholic beverages are sold here of very high quality. Many pastry shops and cafes have been built in Vienna. Also, sweets are produced here, not only at the factory, but also with their own hands. You can also try an amazing wine, which, according to reviews, is great.Also in this city you can visit the kiosks where delicious pies and hot dogs are prepared.
There are many architectural buildings in the city. And also there are many cultural monuments. You can go on a guided tour of the old sights or admire the beauty of the city of Vienna yourself.
This city has a lot of public transport, from trams to water transport. The population of Vienna and its tourists can rent a car or bicycle for their trips. And if you need to quickly get from one end of the city to the other, there is a metro for this.Also, if you want to see the sights, you can order a tourist bus, the ticket price for 24 hours is 25 euros.
The Albertina Museum was founded in a large and beautiful palace. It used to belong to Duke Albert Seksen-Teschensky, married to one of the daughters of Maria Teresa, who brought his art collection here from Brussels, where he was governor from the Habsburgs. This collection was constantly replenished by the descendants of the Duke. In 1919, the Austrian government became the full owner of the museum, which was named Albertina in 1921.
Albertina’s permanent collection consists of over a million prints and 60,000 drawings, and masterpieces by Dürer and Klimt, Kokoschka and Schiele, Picasso, Cezanne and Rauschenberg have been exhibited here during temporary exhibitions. Here you can see the works of masters of the most diverse trends – from French impressionism to German expressionism, from the Russian avant-garde to modern classicism. The paintings of Monet, Degas, Renoir will attract attention along with the works of Katz and Beckmann, Rainer and Macke, Chagall, Rothko and Malevich.
It is impossible not to pay attention in the Albertina to the impressive collections of architecture and photographs (by such outstanding artists as Model and Newton), which are exhibited in specialized exhibitions.
If you are lucky enough to visit the capital of Austria, be sure to visit the Vienna Opera. This architectural masterpiece was built in 1861, was partially destroyed by American bombing during World War II, and was reborn in 1955.The facade of the building is striking with the beauty of arches, columns and sculptures, and fountains are installed near the entrance.
Locals advise to visit the Vienna Opera at least once to feel the atmosphere of the city. We can say for sure that when you see the interior of the opera house, you will feel the spirit of the 19th century. Sculptures and busts of composers, paintings with fragments of opera performances, high ceilings immerse you in the era of the construction of the largest opera house in Austria.
Tourists are advised to get acquainted with the history and internal way of the cultural pearl of Europe on a tour, which is arranged daily and lasts about an hour.You will be taken backstage, where you will find out what happens “behind the scenes” during the performances and preparation for them, how to set the scenery and lay out the props. For Russian-speaking tourists, excursions are held at 14:00 local time.
Even if you don’t like opera as an art, be sure to visit the Vienna Opera Museum. Such an excursion will be remembered by you and your children for a long time.

Belvedere Palace in Vienna
Belvedere in Vienna is a rich palace and park complex in the center of the main city of Austria. Translated from Italian, the text belvedere means “beautiful view”. Many tourists note that when visiting the Vienna Belvedere, its beauty is striking.
Belvedere in Vienna consists of two castles – Upper and Lower, which are separated by a park with fountains, gazebos and sculptures. If people prefer paintings, they can look inside the palaces – in the Upper one there is a permanent exhibition of paintings and statues of the 19th-20th centuries, and in the Lower one there are seasonal / temporary exhibitions.
You can walk through the park and admire the landscape design. It is good here on warm days from June to August, when the fountains work, but in spring the park looks nice too. The entrance to the park area is free, so students with books, young families and, of course, tourists often sit on the benches.
Kreuzenstein Castle is considered one of the most mysterious medieval castles. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Danube, seventeen kilometers from the capital.Many consider this building to be old, because it has many Gothic turrets and lancet windows. This opinion is wrong because the castle is a skilful reconstruction of a Roman fortress. It was completely destroyed by the Swedes in the 17th century. Now the castle is privately owned by the Wilczek dynasty. Thanks to them, everyone can visit the building and carefully examine the walls and courtyard.
During the tour, you will get acquainted with the old interior, which fits well with the ancient weapons and armor of the knights.A huge table with a weight of at least 1 ton is still preserved in the kitchen. Before that, it was used as a bridge over the local river. It is prohibited to take any photographs inside the castle. You need to be careful, as the guide tries to conduct the excursion very quickly, and all the passed rooms are locked with a key.
According to reviews, not far from Kreuzenstein there is a place where you can have a delicious snack. When visiting the restaurant, you can admire the beautiful view of the castle and the water expanses of the Danube.There is an opportunity to watch falconry right from here.
Vienna contains the treasures of the princely family of Liechtenstein, which belonged to the descendants of an old family, as well as their isolated estate in Europe.
The palace complex consists of two structures, including a wonderful park and a public museum. Indoors, you can look at the ancient halls in a regal style and a huge number of wonderful, unusual and antiques for everyday use, which have been collected over four centuries.At the moment, the museum houses objects of painting, pictograms and decorations. There are also 1,500 different famous canvases belonging to the brush of great masters of art. Particularly noteworthy are the preserved artifacts, among which is a wonderful carriage made of noble metal in the Rococo style. The castle has a huge library of the rarest books.
It is worth noting that the museum can be visited at certain times on Fridays from 15:00 – 18:30, and the park is visited from 07:00 – 20:30.
The entrance to the palace chambers costs 20 euros, and the cost of visiting the park is 25 euros. You can visit two sites for 38 euros. To do this, you need to pre-book vacant places.
Wiener Ringstrasse is long enough (5.3 kilometers) to house many monumental buildings, most of which were built during historical times (1860-1890). The architectural masterpieces located here are recognized landmarks of Vienna.
Construction of the Ringstrasse began in 1857 by order of Emperor Franz Joseph. Members of the royal family, the bourgeoisie and the richest people in the country enthusiastically began to build up the boulevard with the most luxurious buildings of all styles, having arranged a kind of competition. Many of these designs, in their original form, can still be admired today.
The main attractions of the Ringstrasse are the Staatsoper State Opera (neo-Renaissance building), Parliament and Town Halls (Flemish Gothic), Burgtheater (Neo-Baroque), University, Museum of Applied Arts, Stock Exchange and Votivkirche (Gothic), which were built towards the end of the 19th century …
The architectural design of the Ringstrasse was created by many building masters such as Gietfried Semper and Friedrich von Schmidt, Theophilus don Hansen and Heinrich von Ferstel.
