Anyone considering college will face questions as they choose a program and enroll. Gateway Technical College’s Quick Start event will help to make that process as smooth as possible.

The event, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Dec. 11 in the Student Services Center in the Racine Building on the Racine Campus, 901 Lake Ave., will provide participants guidance on how to get started, select classes, apply for financial aid or determine career options.

“Quick Start is a great opportunity for students to get a jump start on enrolling for the spring semester,” said Amanda Virzi, Gateway Technical College director of Student Access. “All of our services are here to assist students with any questions they have regarding enrolling or financial aid.”

Student who submit an application for admission will have the $30 application fee waived.
