New Student Orientation

Welcome to Gateway! We’re excited you’ve chosen to join the Red Hawk community. The best way to explore everything Gateway has to offer and get your questions answered is to participate in new student orientation. All newly admitted students are encouraged to complete orientation prior to the start of their first semester at Gateway. 

You have two options for completing your new student orientation: online via My Gateway or in-person at any of Gateway’s three campuses

  • Online orientation is quick, easy and can be completed anywhere with internet access at any time. You’ll gain all the helpful information and resources you would at in-person orientation. 
    To access online orientation, click on “My Gateway” in the upper menu of this webpage. Log in with your student ID number and password and click on “New Student Orientation” on the left side of the page. It’s that easy!
    Need to take a break mid-way through? No worries! Gateway will save your progress and you can pick up where you left off.
  • In-person orientation allows you to interact one-on-one with an academic advisor for a more personalized experience. An academic advisor will guide you and your peers through the online orientation together in a computer lab, with the addition of an optional campus tour at the end. You’ll also have the chance to meet fellow new students and Gateway staff members.
    Click to browse dates and times and register online for in-person New Student Orientation.

Choose the option that works best for you! Remember, new student orientation is the best way to start your first semester at Gateway off on the right foot and learn what life will be like as a Red Hawk.
