Applying to Gateway

Fall 2019 information sessions will be announced soon! For more information, please contact us at 510.215.3835.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Step One: Attend an Information Session

The information session is the first step in deciding whether Gateway is right for you. During these sessions, you learn more about the program, how it works, who qualifies, what you can expect, and what Gateway expects of you.

For more information, call 510.215.3835

Step Two: Complete Gateway to College and Contra Costa College Online

You must do both. If you have questions about either application, please contact Gateway program staff at 510.215.3835.

Step Three: Participate in an Interview Session

Once you have completed the first two application steps, you need to schedule an interview. This includes a timed essay assessment.

Interviews will take place at Contra Costa College, 2600 Mission Bell Drive, San Pablo, California. You must bring your completed Gateway to College and Contra Costa College applications to the interview. Also remember to arrive early, dress appropriately, and be prepared to explain why Gateway to College is the best fit for your educational goals.  You are welcome to bring a family member, friend or other support person, if you’d like.
