Visiting Students

YOU CAN BE IN TWO PLACES AT ONCE

Want to take a class or two at Gateway while you’re enrolled at another college? Here’s how to apply for admission.

We welcome visiting students from other colleges who want to round out their studies with classes at Gateway. If you’re not currently enrolled in another school, apply as a first-time freshman or transfer student.

How to Apply

It’s easy to apply to Gateway as a visiting student, and we’re here to help. Just follow these four steps:

  1. Submit the Application for Admission. It’s free, and it takes about 15 minutes to complete.
  2. Submit a visiting student application.
  3. Explore financial aid. Visiting students are eligible for Financial Aid by completing a Consortium Agreement. Please contact the financial aid office at your home college to complete the request.

Questions? Give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to welcoming you to Gateway!
