Referring students to Gateway to College
Students are referred to Gateway from many places including schools, community organizations, friends and family members. In order to apply to Gateway, students must be cleared through Pueblo City Schools as eligible for a dropout recovery program. This page outlines the steps for a Pueblo City Schools and Pueblo School District 70 staff member to refer students to Gateway to College. Please take a minute to familiarize yourself with our referral process.
How to refer a student:
Step 1: Before referring a student, please review the eligibility requirements. If you have questions about eligibility and/or exceptions to the requirements, please contact us before referring a student.
Step 2: Complete the School District Student Referral Form.
Step 3: The student should bring a current copy of her/his transcript, a copy of their check out form and the Student Referral Form to the Gateway to College Office. This information can also be faxed to our office at 719-549-3133. When faxing information, please call our office to confirm we have received the documents.
NOTE: Referral from Pueblo City Schools does NOT guarantee student acceptance into the program. The Gateway to College Selection Committee makes all selection decisions.
