SAVANNAH -- Gateway to College, a new program sponsored by Savannah Technical College, is a dropout prevention and recovery program focusing on students, ages 16-20, who have either dropped out of high school or are on the verge of dropping out.

Gateway to College is taking applications now for fall classes. To be admitted, students need to:
1) Complete an application packet and turn it in to the Gateway to College office, two business days prior to attending a selected information session
2) Attend the information session (reservations are required, but can be made upon application delivery)
3) Attend a two-day evaluation session
4) Interview with staff
5) Attend a financial aid workshop
