President’s Message

Florida Gateway College is proud of its 71 year history of educating students. We serve a five county area of North Florida that includes, Columbia, Baker, Union, Gilchrist, and Dixie Counties, but we also have students from many counties of Florida, the United States and international Countries.

We begin this academic year with many exciting changes including a growing student body (fastest growing college in the Florida State College System for the past two years), new academic programs, new interscholastic sports programs and expanding theatre/music offerings. In addition, the college continues to focus on meeting and exceeding the expectations of our Strategic Plan which includes increasing new enrollment, providing students additional opportunities for student success both inside and outside the classroom and continually assessing strategies and policies in helping students succeed.

Our Associate and Certificate programs continue to be the backbone of our academic programming while offering Bachelor Degree programs in Nursing, Water Resource Management, and Early Childhood Development. We anticipate offering new academic programs at the Associate Degree level in Automotive Technology and Agribusiness in the coming months and will be submitting two additional bachelor degree proposals to the State Education Department in the near future.

FGC and its communities are excited about what is happening on campus now and in the future. Our mission for the past 71 years is to provide you, the student with superior instruction while also providing a nurturing environment where our faculty and staff help you achieve success along the way. Whether you are a high school graduate, dual enrolled high school student or a non-traditional student- “Our Motto is Go Further Together at FGC.”

It has important academic and student services information that can be accessed and I would encourage you to keep this catalog conveniently located so you can refer to it.
