Find Out How to Start College in January at Gateway Info Session Dec. 14

Need a better job? Ready for a fresh start? Tired of not having the right skills? Higher education is the solution, and Gateway Community and Technical College is the place.

Gateway currently is accepting students for the spring semester that begins Jan. 14, and the college is conducting information sessions Dec. 14 at its Edgewood Campus at 790 Thomas More Parkway. Sessions begin at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Gateway has the most affordable tuition in the region, and financial aid and scholarships are available. Financial aid workshops will be available throughout the day Dec. 14 to help prospective students learn how to apply for financial assistance. Gateway also offers free tuition to qualifying low-income students interested in allied health careers other than nursing.

Dec. 14 is a full-service event, said Andre Washington, dean of enrollment management. The information sessions provide all the details about how to apply and enroll. The financial aid workshops will address any concerns about cost, and we also have COMPASS tests scheduled at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Prospective students can get everything done in one day to be admitted.

The COMPASS test is a placement exam for students who don't have ACT or other placement scores. The test simply tells us which classes students are ready for; advance preparation isnt necessary, Washington said.
According to a recently released report on the job outlook for 2020 in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region, 90 percent of the jobs paying above $33,130 a year will require some combination of post-secondary education, on-the-job training, and/or more than a years work experience.
The report, produced in collaboration by Vision 2015 and Agenda 360, shows that healthcare, education, business, finance and technology are the top five fastest-growing and best-paying fields for the future, with production occupations in the sixth spot.

Gateway offers career and transfer education in all of the fastest-growing career fields.

We encourage anyone who is interested in a better job, or starting a college degree, to call us and plan to attend the Dec. 14 event, Washington said.
