Guest Students should note:

  • Gateway Technical College does not offer financial aid to Guest Students. Guest Students must work with their home institution to develop a consortium agreement with Gateway to utilize financial aid at the home institution.
  • It is important you are aware of the prerequisites for Gateway classes. As a Guest Student, prerequisites will be met by either verification of academic standing by your home institution (signature on application) or by ACT/SAT scores that meet the prerequisite requirement. Review prerequisites for Gateway courses at click ‘Search for Classes’.
  • A few individual courses that lead to a certification are actually considered programs. If you are interested in taking a course that would lead to a certification (i.e. Nursing Assistant, EMT) you must follow all outlined admissions requirements for that program.
  • Due to limited enrollment for Gateway’s program students, some core program courses are not available to guest students.
  • Gateway does not guarantee the transferability of courses to your home institution. It is recommended that you check with your university or college to ensure you are taking courses that will transfer.
  • In-state tuition fees apply to Internet courses offered by Gateway. If you are not a resident of Wisconsin, out-of-state tuition will be charged for all other courses.
  • A Guest Student Application is valid for the course/s listed on the application for the semester you have identified. A new Guest Student Application must be completed if you would like to take additional or different courses.
