What is a gateway course?

Gateway Courses

An IUPUI gateway course is a general education course that enrolls at least 100 full-time freshman students. Currently, there are 100 gateway courses served by over 800 gateway faculty. 

The Gateway to Graduation program is a faculty-led effort to improve student learning and retention in gateway courses. Every gateway course has a coordinator.

It represents a collaboration among academic departments that offer gateway courses and key support units, including University College; Institutional Research and Decision Support; Division of Student Affairs; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; and Division of Enrollment Management.
