March 17, 2020 (Updated July 8, 2020)
Our top priority at Gateway is the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and community. In response to the rapidly changing developments related to the global outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), Gateway Technical College facilities will reopen to students and staff on a limited basis beginning May 26.
We recognize the importance of student access to college services and support. All Gateway services and support will be available virtually through August including student support services, registration, advising, student finance, and IT support.
The college will begin adding limited in-person services at the end of July with a plan to fully re-open campuses at the start of Fall Semester. Our goal is to minimize the future spread of the virus and to consolidate the use of space to facilitate keeping the campuses clean. Please continue to check back for updated information.
For information about the 2020 Fall Semester courses, please visit our Academics and Classes page.
The college looks forward to returning – and new students – starting their coursework this fall!
