What are the required GATE courses?

Here is a complete list of all required GATE courses.

What if I already have dual credit for GATE courses?

Students are allowed to apply dual or AP credit to courses required for the GATE program as long as a minimum of five GATE courses are completed at UT Tyler.

How much does the GATE program cost?

GATE students will incur no cost other than standard tuition and fees for the fall and spring semesters during the freshman and sophomore years. Costs associated with the five-week study abroad experience will vary year to year depending on the international location.

Do I have to live on campus as part of the GATE program?

All GATE students who are required to live on campus as part of the UT Tyler Residency Policy are strongly encouraged to live in Ornelas Residence Hall during their freshman year.

Ornelas Residence Hall is centrally located on the UT Tyler campus and overlooks beautiful Harvey Lake. A 24-hour staffed front desk monitors the public entrance and each resident has card access locks to their suite. The student study library is located on the first floor, along with a theatre/common room with a capacity of 30 people. A full-time residence coordinator lives on the site and student resident assistants are available to assist with any issues that may arise.
