Gateway courses offer students the opportunity to enhance their development of college-level skills in designated sections of, or alternatives to, popular, introductory courses in various academic disciplines such as biology, chemistry, history, physics, political science, psychology, and sociology. In Gateway classes, experienced and specially trained instructors supplement the standard course curriculum with small group sessions and alternative approaches designed to assist students in making the transition to college-level work. Academic advisers assist students in developing class schedules and charting academic performance.
Enrollment in Gateway courses is limited; students who can benefit the most from Gateway courses are identified based on the results of their University Placement Exams and are contacted by an academic adviser prior to their first semester at the School of Arts and Sciences.
