Gateway was created in 1997 when the Kentucky Community and Technical College System was formed by the passage of the Kentucky Postsecondary Improvement Act, which merged existing community colleges with technical schools. Three existing technical schools in Northern Kentucky were subsequently consolidated, and the new entity became Gateway Community and Technical College in September 2002. A Gateway education enables students to start here and go anywhere. Students can be job-ready in less than a year, or complete an associate degree and transfer to a four-year university to earn a bachelor’s degree. Gateway offers career and transfer education in 30 subject areas designed to meet the needs of local employers, including: manufacturing, nursing and allied health, energy, business administration and information technology, criminal justice, information security, automotive technology and collision repair, education, homeland security and emergency management, and fire and rescue science. Gateway offers incredible value since its tuition rate is roughly half the cost of any four-year public university in Kentucky.
