College Connections Director:
Students and parents should refer to the Gateway Technical College website for information about courses, prerequisites, and schedules. You may also request a GTC Course Catalog for course and program information.
Eligibility Requirements for the Youth Options Program:
Public high school juniors and/or seniors who are in good academic standing, do not have disciplinary problems, and are not state-defined At-Risk students are eligible to enroll in the GTC Youth Options Program. Refer to the Youth Options Program Application Form.
The GTC college parallel courses are ranked as honors courses. All other GTC courses are ranked as regular level courses. Check the KUSD approved YOP course list for Gateway Technical College.
The YOP technical college credit ratio is: 4 college credits = 1 high school credit.
The Gateway Technical College Admissions Representative reviews the YOP applications. Students who are accepted into the GTC Youth Options Program are contacted for a personal interview with GTC representative. At that time, students are given specific instructions regarding course enrollment, college IDs, and other college privileges.
Some GTC courses require additional fees and supplies, which are your responsibility. Here is a partial listing of those fees, which are subject to change:
Most GTC fall courses start in August about two weeks before the KUSD school year starts. In August when students pick up your high school schedule, you must synchronize your high school and GTC schedule. Bring a copy of your GTC course schedule to your high school counselor to verify your enrollment and to obtain releases you may need during the school day.
