Gateway Math and English Courses
Gateway Math and English Help Ensure Academic Success
MC students are generally more successful when they take the required math and English courses, what the College calls “gateway courses,” in their first year. They earn better grades and have greater success at attaining their education goals, such as earning an associate’s degree or transferring to a four-year college/university. In fact, 87 percent of new students who complete gateway math and English classes in their first year at MC return the next year!
