Gateway to College at ECC
The Gateway to College program is a unique opportunity for you to spend your first term in college with the support of advisors and high school liaison. You take college courses at Essex County College that are equivalent to courses required for graduation. Credits are based on assessment of your proficiencies for all curriculum areas, and not time spent in the program.
You are referred through the school district by your guidance counselor and/or case manager. There is an application and interview process that takes place in the spring and fall. Spots are limited, so if you’re interested, you should speak with your guidance counselor as early as possible.
