Gateway is dedicated to helping students identify and achieve realistic goals through excellent educational opportunities. The administration and staff of the College promote responsible participation and high achievement as goals for our students. As a Gateway Technical College student, you should be aware of and accept responsibility as an active, contributing member of the College. Gateway Technical College believes that all students have responsibilities in the areas of governance, services, and conduct.

Student Academic Responsibilities

Students are responsible for their own learning and development. They have a responsibility to be active learners by attending class, participating in class activities and discussions, completing class and laboratory assignments, and preparing in advance for the scheduled class session.

Student Use of Services Responsibilities

Students are responsible for appropriate use of equipment and services provided by the College:

  • Knowledge and participation in student social and professional activities.
  • Seeking assistance when facing problems that interfere with educational success.
  • Meeting financial obligations to Gateway Technical College and those incurred through student loan programs.

Student Information Updates

It is necessary for the college to have current information in case of illness, emergencies, and the mailing of official correspondence. Therefore, it is your responsibility to inform the college through any Student Services Center if there is a change of name, address, or phone number. To update address, phone number, or email students should complete a Student Data Add/Change form available in Student Services Center or complete changes through the Change Address/Phone/Email link on WebAdvisor.
