Gateway to College

Gateway to College is designed for young adults ages 16-24 who have dropped out of high school or are significantly behind in credits for their age and not on track to graduate. This program is a national initiative brought to Flint through a partnership between Mott Community College and the Flint Community Schools. The program allows students to complete their high school diploma requirements on a college campus while simultaneously earning college credits towards a degree or certificate.

Students are placed into small learning communities during their first semester(s), and together they take classes in reading, writing, math and college skills. Upon completion of the “Foundation” courses students transition and begin taking classes with the general student population. All classes are conducted on Mott Community College campus and are taught by college faculty. Students are simultaneously working toward a high school diploma and a college degree or certificate.

This program reintroduces youth to education, acclimates students to a college environment, builds their basic skills, improves their academic habits, reinforces their motivation, and prepares them for college success.
