Gateway Community & Technical College offers a variety of tuition assistance and other special resources designed to help you reach your educational goals. Many of these are funded by grants from the federal government or other organizations. Some programs offer tuition assistance while others connect you with opportunities for student employment, tutoring assistance, or special success services.
Peer Mentors will have a wide variety of resources at their fingertips that they can share with their mentees. Examples of those resources include: how to apply for SNAP benefits, housing applications, scholarship information, and workshops.
