Recognizing that undocumented students make important contributions to the intellectual and social life of the campus and our surrounding community, Gateway Community College admits and enrolls students regardless of citizenship or immigration status.
 

Application Process

Undocumented students should contact the Admissions Office to speak directly with an admissions representative.
 

Cost and Financial Assistance

Undocumented students may be eligible for In-State Tuition (According to Connecticut Law)  Qualifying students must:
