What is W&J Gateway?

W&J Gateway is the next step for deposited students. It is a seamless process for you to complete your enrollment at W&J. Through Gateway, you will register for housing and fall semester courses, complete the required forms, and learn all about your first semester experience at W&J. W&J Gateway will be available starting on November 18. To access the site, you will need your W&J account log-in credentials, which are available on your W&J Leadership Application and Status page.

Complete Your Course Placements

In the meantime, we encourage you to complete your course placements. These are required to assist the faculty in pairing you with courses that best fit your academic needs. There is no such thing as a bad score on placement! In fact, there is no score at all – the faculty just use the data in conjunction with your high school transcript to determine what courses at W&J will best fit you. This process ensures you won’t be in a course that is too challenging or, alternatively, in a course that is too easy for you.

Language Placement

To complete the language placement:

  1. Log-in to your W&J Leadership Application and Status page.
  2. Click on the “Language Placement” item in the Gateway Checklist section.
  3. Fill in the questions in the Language profile and click “Submit”.

Math Placement

To complete the math placement, go to the Math Placement page and follow the instructions to complete the placement. Please note that the math placement is a timed process and can only be taken once.
