New Students – Getting Started

All new students attend a one-on-one advising appointment after completing admissions steps and orientation. Gateway Advisors follow a model called SMART: Student Mentoring through Advising, Retention, and Transitions. SMART is designed to help you start college on the right foot. Find your program SMART Plan with required classes here.  Ready for advising? Call us at (859) 442-1630.

Current Students – Advising and Registration  

Ready to choose classes and take the next step toward your future? The Advising Center at Gateway is here to help.

As a student at Gateway you’ll be assigned an academic advisor who will help you plan your classes, make sure you’re on track to graduate, give you career advice, and more.

Here’s how to get started:

  • Find out who your advisor is by logging into your self-service account or Starfish. Or contact us—we can help.
  • Make an appointment with your advisor through Starfish. If you’d prefer, you can just walk in to the Student Services Office during advising times—but there may be a wait.
  • See your advisor at least once each semester.

Questions? Contact the Advising Center. We’re always here for you.
