Florida Gateway College is proud of its 74 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 most counties of Florida, the United States and International Countries.
We begin this academic year with a belief that some normalcy is happening on campus in a post COVID Era. 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, Early Childhood Development, and Elementary Education.
FGC and its communities are excited about what is happening on campus now and in the future during this academic year. Our mission, as always for the past 74 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. This tradition continues as FGC will be building a new STEM building, the newest and largest Academic Building at the Lake City Campus, scheduled to open August 2022.
This catalog is an important resource for all new and returning students to utilize. It has important academic and student services information that can be assessed and I would encourage you to keep this catalog conveniently located so you can refer to it. If you ever need additional information please feel free to contact one of the administrative offices listed.
Welcome and best wishes for a successful 2021-2022 academic year!
Lawrence Barrett, Ed.D.
