The Gateway Promise Program

Make your college dreams a reality with the Gateway Promise program! Through the Gateway Promise program, eligible high school seniors can attend Gateway tuition-free. The Promise program helps fill the gap between financial aid and the cost of Gateway’s tuition and fees for students who meet certain eligibility requirements. Promise students also receive additional support, like one-on-one coaching and a summer bridge program, to help you meet your graduation goals.


Apply to the Gateway Promise program in just two easy steps:

  1. Submit your Gateway application for admission by May 1, 2020 (extended to June 1, 2020) and be sure to indicate in the Academic History section that you are interested in the Gateway Promise. 
  2. Submit your Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) by May 1, 2020 (extended to June 1, 2020).

That’s all you need to do! Gateway’s Promise program will contact you to inform you of your Promise enrollment status.
