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. Orientation takes about an hour. If you can’t complete the orientation in one session, you can finish later. Orientation has four modules, each ending with a quiz. You must score at least an 80% on each quiz.  Print or take a picture of your completion certificate for your advising appointment.
