Financial Aid - Financial aid is financial assistance to help students of any age meet their educational costs. Gateway Technical College uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine if a student is eligible for federal grants, student and parent loans, work-study, and state grants. Approximately 95% of students who apply for financial aid receive some sort of assistance. There are three major types of aid available to Gateway students. They include:

  1. Grants (do not have to be repaid unless you stop attending)
  2. Student Loans (must be repaid)
  3. Student Employment (you work and earn money to help pay for school)
