Gateway and Open Courses

COBE’s nine (9) gateway courses will consist of the following with an earned, minimum grade of C- or better:

Note: A student must achieve a minimum COBE Gateway GPA of 2.5. If a student completes all COBE gateways with the minimum acceptable grade of C-, their COBE gateway GPA would be 1.7 and not high enough for COBE admission. We encourage all students to aim high and do exceptionally well in the 10 COBE gateway courses.
