Student Support Counseling

Life as a student is often exciting and rewarding.  At times, it can also be challenging.  And let’s face it-- sometimes we all need a little support along the way. Gateway Technical College Student Support Counselors can provide that extra support needed to help you overcome challenges as you pursue your educational goals.

At Gateway Technical College, we provide private and confidential counseling for students free of charge at the Elkhorn, Kenosha, and Racine Campuses. All of our counselors have Master’s Degrees in Counseling and adhere to the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics.

Student Support Counselors can help you address:

  • Personal or Relationship Issues
  • Transition and Change
  • Stress Management
  • Communication Skills
  • Grief and Loss
  • Community Referrals
  • Cultural/Diversity Concerns
  • Self Awareness/Advocacy
  • Coping Strategies

Student Emergency Funds are available at Gateway Technical College through the Gateway Foundation and the Dreamkeepers program.  If a student is facing an unexpected, unanticipated financial emergency that could derail graduation from Gateway Technical College, the Student Support Counselors do assist with the Student Emergency Fund process.
