Pay In Full

Students have the option to pay the full cost of their tuition and fees online by credit card or in-person by cash, check, or credit card.

Student Payment Plan

The Student Payment Plan allows students to pay their bill through four payments scheduled throughout the semester. Enrollment in the Payment Plan is free and requires no money down!

Third-Party Authorizations

Third-party funding is financial assistance received from sources other than financial aid, including employer, apprenticeship, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA), Workforce Development Center (WFDC), or community agencies.

Veterans Benefits

Veterans, service members and their families may qualify for assistance paying for their education through Veterans Education Benefits. Many Gateway programs are approved for educational benefits through the Wisconsin Department of Veteran Affairs and/or the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs.

Scholarships

Scholarships are awarded to students often based on factors like financial need, academic merit, or specific achievements. Scholarships are available each year through the Gateway Technical College Foundation and outside sources.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is assistance from the state or federal government in the form of grants, work study, and student loans to help students meet educational costs. Student loans need to be repaid while grants and work study do not.

Employer Tuition Reimbursement

Some employers reimburse part or all of tuition for their employees’ job-related education. Check with your employer’s Human Resources office for details on available programs at your workplace.
