Description:Gateway to College is a nationally recognized dual-credit program that serves youth who have dropped out of high school or are significantly behind in credits and unlikely to graduate. Once admitted into the program, students are enrolled in a Gateway to College learning community on the college campus. A learning community is a group of 20 to 25 students who take all first-term courses together to help prepare them for successful transition to college-level courses. First-term courses include reading, writing, mathematics, college survival and success, and academic lab. Students start earning both high school and college credits in their first term. After successfully completing the learning community first term, students transition onto the comprehensive campus and enroll in college courses. They continue to earn both high school and college credit as they work toward earning a high school diploma. All courses after the learning community first term are selected with the assistance of a Resource Specialist, who provides support and access to resources to help students be successful.

Gateway to College does not serve students who are doing well in high school and want to make an early transition to college. It works exclusively with students who have not experienced success in a traditional high school, and are either no longer attending or are significantly behind in credits and unable to graduate with their peers.

Gateway to College is a scholarship program that pays for college tuition and books. Gateway students are expected to pay all fees associated with their course work and college participation. Current programs operate at 33 colleges in 20 states. See the website for locations and specific eligibility and application requirements.
