Gateway Technical College recognizes the need for its students to prepare for careers in the ever-changing global economy and is internationalizing its campus and curriculum to give its students a step up in today's marketplace.
Gateway offers a variety of international education opportunities ranging from Global Scholars – study abroad to foreign film festivals to international partnerships. Students and faculty are encouraged to get involved and think globally.
The Higher Education Act (HEA) of 1992 mandated that a student can receive financial aid for study abroad if the student is enrolled in a program approved by the home institution. Moreover, the student would be eligible to receive "grants, loans, or work assistance without regard to whether the study abroad program is required as a part of the student's degree."
