Gateway Programs Named Among the Best Online Programs

Gateway Community and Technical Colleges Business Administration and Information Technology programs are named among the best online associate programs in the United States by OnlineColleges.net.

This national recognition reflects the outstanding work done by faculty and staff to provide quality online course offerings, said Dr. Keith Bird, Gateway Interim President. Gateway recognizes the demand for employees in these fields and is working to provide educational opportunities that will produce the needed workforce.

To identify the best online programs in the United States, OnlineColleges.net collected data on academic quality, online offerings, cost and student aid. This data was then applied to a custom formula to rank the schools. This formula assigns a percentile value to each variable and then, taking the schools cumulative performance, ranks every institution in a given category. The end result is an accurate and organized list of the standout schools for 2016.

Faculty commitment to online course excellence is celebrated at Gateway, said Doug Penix, Associate Vice President of Academic Services. Iam pleased that our efforts are being recognized by OnlineColleges.net and other organizations.

Gateway has developed over 75 online courses taught by over 100 certified online facilitators. In fall 2015, there were over 3000 online course enrollments.
