New Student Orientation


We’re excited to have you here at Gateway Community & Technical College.

SMART Online Orientation gives you important information about the campus resources, programs, and services to support your success. Completing orientation is REQUIRED for advising and registering for classes.  

Set up your user account and password before starting orientation. Don't forget to save your user name and password-you’ll always need it to log in. Your user name will look similar to first initial lastname 0000, such as 'jdoe0001'. If you are accessing orientation from a computer off campus (At home, public space, etc...), you will need to add "@kctcs.edu" to your username to get logged in. Example: jdoe0001@kctcs.edu.

Please allow 24 hours for your username to be validated before you login to orientation. If you have difficulties accessing orientation or setting up your user account, please request assistance below. If you are a visiting or non-credential student, start at the Visiting and Transient Student page.
