A college education is an excellent investment in your future. A degree, diploma or certificate from Gateway Community and Technical College will pay off throughout your life---a higher salary, better professional opportunities, and personal satisfaction.
Education You Can Afford
A Gateway education is an especially good value. At Gateway, you'll pay less than half of what you'd pay at a four-year college, for the same quality education. We offer a range of scholarships, grants and loans. In fact, our students earn higher grades after they transfer to four-year colleges than students who start at a four-year school. We work to bring this great education within reach for everyone.

Priority Dates for Financial Aid Documentation
Priority dates for submission of FAFSA and/or financial aid documentation are recommended dates for requested documentation to be submitted to the financial aid office. The dates are set to allow appropriate time for review and processing prior to term start dates. There is no guarantee that all processing will be completed by the term start date as there are a variety of items to be reviewed. Submission of documents may continue after the priority dates listed. However, after the priority dates, students may wish to discuss payment arrangements with the Business Office.
After review of submitted documents, additional documentation may be required to correct conflicting information. Notice of additional documentation is sent through Gateway email and/or mail.
