Eastern Gateway Community College says it's working with Youngstown State University and other community colleges in the area to keep students in class following the decision to put a pause on its enrollment.

The college's administration team posted on EGCC's Facebook page Thursday following numerous requests for information from students.

The post says EGCC is working to help its students enroll at either Youngstown State or other community colleges.

Eastern Gateway says it has been working with YSU to help students transfer there if the student's program is offered there. According to the update, Eastern Gateway and YSU have been putting together a plan to make sure EGCC students get credits for classes they've taken and help with the transition into earning a degree without delays.

The administration team says it met with YSU and is working with accreditors to make the transition work efficiently. The post also notes that Youngstown State is pursuing an additional location in Steubenville to serve students in that area.

A YSU representative will also make stops at both the Steubenville and Youngstown EGCC campuses in the next few weeks. The representative will be at the Steubenville campus on March 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the Youngstown campus on March 13 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Eastern Gateway says they're developing a matrix with information to include programs offered and points of contact for other area community colleges as well.

21 News reported earlier this week that East Ohio College in East Liverpool and Choffin Career and Technical Center in Youngstown have offered help for EGCC students.
