My advice to all students is you don't have to be forced into the traditional route if it doesn't work for you. Other options may fit your needs better. Try them!

When I applied to Gateway U, I kept asking myself if this was the right time and the right program. I went over how much time I actually had and how much time I had to sacrifice. I was honest about what I wanted from Gateway U ...

what people are saying

Here’s what Gateway U students and partners are saying.

I've always hated applying for the FAFSA. However Gateway U made the process seamless. Kasny (Recruitment and Enrollment Specialist) walked me through every step and broke down what FAFSA was asking for. Thanks to him, the whole process was completed with ease. I am very grateful for all of his and Gateway U's help!

What I love the most about Gateway U is that no matter what you're never alone. I applied for financial aid in November and was unable to get access to pell grant because of issues with my parents FSA ID. Because of this I became very frustrated and discouraged. I was finally back on the right path to going to school and then I'm hit with this. Some days I would feel so defeated but Ms. Nah stuck with me and helped me fill out the paperwork to get my pell grant funds. I am now a student at Gateway U and receiving full pell grant. My goal is to get my degree without any debt!

I think a roadblock that every student worries about along their college journey is possibly falling short toward a payment for their term bill. This is a fear that I've allowed to get in the way of me pursuing school for so many years. This fear almost stopped me from applying to Gateway U. If you are a student like me and affording college is a fear of yours. Apply anyway! You really have to face your fears. I did and Gateway U helped me every step of the way. If I needed support with FAFSA or if I needed to apply for other scholarships. I never felt alone. Saymah would always say, we're going to figure it out.

My experience with Gateway U has been amazing. Saymah and the coach are all motivating and super authentic. The work can be challenging and you're going to need to manage your time wisely to get your work done. However, you have a great support team backing you, helping you, and putting in a lot of time to make sure you succeed.

Gateway U has exceeded my expectations so far. Saymah and Karen truly care about my success and mastering my projects. They provide me with resources that help me better understand the processes behind the course work. Overall 10/10! I've tried other schools before and the support I get from those two women just doesn't compare.

At first I was kind of skeptical of the program at Gateway U but after talking with my KIPP counselor Mr. Santana and getting to know Ms. Nah ( Executive Director of Gateway U) I warmed up to the idea. I just didn't believe the “make your own schedule”. Now the flexibility is actually my favorite part of the program. Going to college and playing football was always apart of my plan but the pandemic kind of changed those plans. Because of Gateway U, I was able to gain credits during the pandemic and practice full time to get ready for tryouts.

Gateway U's program with SNHU is really a flexible online school. I am on my second term and I'm having the best time of my life. I love my cohort and I get to meet new people in my city. It's also very affordable. I also love my coaches! They are the most compassionate and knowledgeable professionals I've ever met. They really do care about you as a person, a student, and a professional.
