Gateway Science Academy is partnering with the University of Missouri in St Louis, Lindenwood University, and Saint Louis Community College to offer advanced college credit courses to the eligible GSA students at no cost. GSA students will have the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time.
The fee for Dual Enrollment courses is about one-fifth of the cost for regular undergraduate courses on campus. A three-credit course with the Dual Enrollment costs $100 – $300, while a three-credit hour course would cost approximately $1,000 for an undergraduate student to take on campus. Gateway Science Academy will cover all tuition for eligible students and parents will NOT be responsible for any payments.
If you are interested, please fill your application today and return to GSA Guidance Counselors, Mrs. Nazife Aktas and/or Mr. Ali Durhan
