Then, once you’re a student here, Gateway will allow you to view your grades, register for future classes and view billing information.

  7. Deposit Early: When you know Manchester is the university for you… the place you’ll be home away from home, challenged, encouraged, supported and recognized… then it’s time to make it official. Submit your $250 enrollment deposit to the Office of Admissions to reserve your spot.
