Income tax preparation–free for Gateway students!

February 20, 2015

Tax time is coming!  Although winter seems here to stay, April 15 will arrive before you know it!

Qualified Gateway students can take advantage of free state and federal income tax preparation and e-file, a service provided by the college in cooperation with the IRS and New Life Corporation of New Haven.  Your income must be less than $50,000; you must bring to the session a government-issued photo ID, an original Social Security Card or ITIN for each person being claimed, all income forms such as W-2 or 1099, last year’s tax return if available, a list of deductions, and your bank account information for refund direct deposit.

Sessions are being held in room N008 (lower level of the north building) on the following schedule:

Weeknights 6 to 9 pm, Saturdays 9 am to 1 pm

Monday, Tuesday and Saturday — now through March 14, 2015

Monday, Thursday and Saturday — March 23 to April 14, 2015

Fulfilling academic dreams through scholarships

February 20, 2015

The Gateway Foundation offers a wide range of scholarships to help Gateway students fulfill their academic dreams.  The Foundation explains that  “Continuing academic scholarship opportunities include an array of disciplines, including business, early childhood education or special education, engineering technology, health care, human services, liberal arts, mathematics, media services and science.  Scholarships also reflect donor-specified requirements, such as financial need, academic merit, community service, “lapsed” academic career, specific geographic residency, or status as an employee of – or the child or grandchild of an employee of – the donor company.”

Get some extra help financing your education–to apply, fill out the online scholarship application!  The deadline to apply is March 31, 2015.

Spring semester starts Friday!

January 21, 2015

The semester is set to begin Friday January 23rd. Here are some things you don’t want to forget:
College ID – Gets you into the garage and the college. Also serves as your library card.
Schedule – You will need this for the obvious reason of knowing which classroom you’re in but also needed when you go to the bookstore to get your textbooks.
Pens and paper – Yes, this might seem obvious to some but I can’t tell you how many students come to the library asking to borrow a pen or pencil.

Here are some other tips:
Password reset kiosks – located across from the elevators on every floor (if that doesn’t work the IT office is located in Room N323 in the North building)
College ID office – Located in N008 (that’s in the lower level of the North building)

If you have questions, you can always come to the library located in L200 on the 2nd floor of the South building or contact us by phone email, or text. Have a great semester!
