Gateway Enrolling Now for 12-Week Session Starting Feb. 6

Are you ready for college? Theres no need to wait until fall. You can register now to start classes at Gateway Community & Technical College on Feb. 6.

At Gateway, students can earn certificates qualifying them for the job market in as little as one semester, or they can complete an associate degree in two years if enrolled full time. The new Gateway2NKU dual admissions program guarantees acceptance at Northern Kentucky University to students completing an associate degree in a Gateway2NKU pathway. Gateway associate degree graduates are also guaranteed admission to Thomas More College along with a TMC scholarship of up to $14,000.

Theres no better time than the present to start at Gateway, said Andre Washington, dean of enrollment management. Quality education, financial aid, affordable tuition, credits that transfer to any other accredited college or university in the nation, and credentials that are highly respected by employers add up to unsurpassed opportunity.

Perhaps the best reason to enroll at Gateway this spring is to prepare for an improving economy and the job growth forecast for this region between now and 2020, added Ed Hughes, Gateway president and CEO. The recent 2020 Jobs Outlook report 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 or transfer education in all of those areas.

On a practical note, Gateway's affordable tuition means students who enroll at Gateway and complete an associate degree and then transfer to a four-year university can save 40 percent of the typical cost of a bachelors degree, Washington added.

The college offers 33 different categories of scholarships, ranging in size from $200 to $5,000, as well as free tuition to qualifying low-income students interested in allied health careers other than nursing.
We encourage anyone who is interested in a better job or starting a college degree to call us, Washington said. Were here to enable people to get a fresh start, and we provide the programs and services to help them succeed.
