Gateway and Regional Partners Host Virtual College Fair

Published on Jun 22, 2020

Gateway Community & Technical College, in partnership with Northern Kentucky University, Thomas More University and the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce – hosts the Northern Kentucky Virtual College Fair on June 25.

The open house experience invites recent high school graduates and family members to consider completing their Fall 2020 semester closer to home. Representatives from each community partner will share their streamlined admissions process and what students will gain from staying in the region. 

Gateway plans to highlight their transfer partnerships with NKU, TMU, and other 4-year institutions and the benefits of a student beginning their higher education journey at Gateway.

Gateway2NKU is one example of a dual enrollment partnership Gateway offers with our partner institutions. Gateway’s dual enrollment programs allow students to follow set pathways to take classes in completing the associate degree and then transfer into their major as a junior to complete their bachelor’s degree all while having the student benefits at both schools.

Alexis Garrison recently graduated with an associate in applied science in human services from Gateway and transferred to NKU. “Because of this program I have three semesters at NKU to complete and I will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in social work,” said Garrison. “Without the Gateway2NKU program I honestly don’t believe I would have found my true passion.”

Following the presentations, students can join breakout discussions with admissions professionals from each institution to answer questions on academic programs, student engagement and financial aid. Students can also take the next steps to apply and enroll at each university. 

“The NKY Chamber, through our GROW NKY initiative, is focused on growing, attracting and retaining globally competitive talent in our region. Now more than ever, as parents

and students are faced with tough decisions in the uncertainty of the upcoming semester, we encourage all to consider the high quality and diverse education opportunities that exist right here in Northern Kentucky,” said Brent Cooper, President and CEO of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
