Education You Can Afford

A Gateway education is an especially good value. At Gateway, you’ll pay less than half of what you’d pay at a four-year college, for the same quality education.  We offer a range of scholarshipsgrants and loans. In fact, our students earn higher grades after they transfer to four-year colleges than students who start at a four-year school.  We work to bring this great education within reach for everyone.
