Academics and Classes

Updated January 14, 2022

Note: For the month of January, some courses may temporarily switch to a virtual format. If you are enrolled in an impacted course, your faculty will be communicating with you. Please check your Gateway student email for information on the upcoming semester from your instructors.

Spring Semester will return to full-size classes while still providing the flexibility of in-person, blended and online options. Student safety remains a priority with face masks required in campus facilities and increased sanitizing of classrooms and labs.

Classes for Spring Semester are now available in My Gateway. Browse available courses here. Students are encouraged to register early for best class selection.

The college will continue to support students to ensure their success through on-campus and online support services. Students can request Chromebooks and wi-fi hot spots as needed by contacting any faculty or staff member. Details about wi-fi access at Gateway campuses and centers can be found here.

Course materials can be purchased in-person from the Follett bookstores on the Elkhorn, Kenosha and Racine campuses or online by visiting Visit for details.

Course delivery options include:

In-person: If a course is listed with a campus location and meeting date and time, the course will be offered in a fully on-campus, in-person format.

Blended: This course will combine in-person and online instruction; less than 50% of the instruction will be online. Online instruction may include online learning activities and/or video conferencing.

INET: 100% of learning activities are delivered via online classroom (Blackboard) and don’t require students to be together at the same time. Students choose the day and time to complete readings and assignments in order to meet weekly deadlines. In general, students are not required to come to a Gateway facility for any part of these courses. Students may be required to come to a one-time, in-person orientation or to take their tests on campus.

OSYNC: 100% of instruction is delivered online via a video conferencing platform (examples include Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, etc.). There are specific dates and times for students to attend class online.
