College Counseling

Newsletters, Forms, and Guides

College Counseling Newsletters

Every week throughout the fall, seniors will be sent a College Counseling Newsletter through Canvas. The newsletter will feature a schedule of college representatives who are visiting campus, standardized testing information, and other details about the college counseling process at Gonzaga. We will also post each newsletter on this page, below.

Important Forms

Throughout the college search and application process, students and their parents will be asked to fill out several forms and questionnaires, all of which can be downloaded here.
