Gateway to College

Gateway to College, a national dropout recovery and scholarship program, allows students, ages 16 - 20, who may not have been successful in high school, the opportunity to get back on track and earn a high school diploma.

Through the program and under the guidance of a caring team of instructors and student support specialists with experience and interest in at-risk youth, students complete their high school diploma requirements at community colleges while simultaneously earning college credits toward an associate’s degree, transfer credits, or a certificate. Young people who had little chance of graduating from high school are achieving post-secondary success and pursuing college degrees that will lead to fulfilling and challenging careers.

Since 2003, Gateway to College has evolved from a single-site program into a national network of 35 colleges in 20 states partnering with more than 125 school districts. Spokane Falls Community College is proud to join the Gateway to College National Network in this initiative and is the third college in Washington State to implement the program.
