Eastern Gateway Community College – Youngstown

  • EGCC
  • Free tuition!! We have something called the Gateway Grant. As long as they have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA or higher, they are eligible for two years free tuition!  There is no test requirement for this one either.  This is a great option particularly  if you have a student who is a good student but isn’t a great test taker and may not have the score to get into the four year colleges. We also have great transfer options to four year colleges should they decide to continue on:)
  • We have a great initiative called the Union Benefit. If you have a student whose parent is a member of a union, any union, they qualify for free tuition! There is no GPA requirement on this option.
  • Starting this spring, Vet Tech and Radiologic Tech will officially be at Youngstown. We are very excited about these so come fall, the program will be in full swing for your students to begin.
  • For your students who have no desire to go to college but plan to get training for our workforce, we have some great options as well. I will mention these in my presentation and if they are interested, I will pass them along to our workforce person who can explain how they work.

BGSU college visits

BGSU knows it’s not one-size-fits-all because every student has different needs. Therefore, we are providing a variety of resources to help navigate this year, and we hope one of these offerings is beneficial.

In-person visits

Our in-person visits are small and personalized with top safety and cleaning practices in place, per our Chief Health Officer Ben Batey. Any students interested in coming on campus reach out to for reservation information. The majority of the visits include a presentation and campus tour, but some days are tours only. Starting a conversation with Admissions is the best way for a student to know what would suit them.

Virtual events

We continue to offer an array of virtual sessions on a large range of topics that we hope your students will consider:

• Admissions Information Session and Q&A (highly recommended for a first-time virtual visitor)
• BGSU Application Workshop: Walk through the BGSU Application with Us
• Scholarship Opportunities for First-Year Students
• Life as a Falcon: Current Student Panel
• Academic Information Sessions: Learn more about majors & programs

Large college fairs

Finally, BGSU continues to be represented at a variety of large college fairs this fall, the majority of which are online. For a full list of where BG will be this fall, please refer your students to this guide.
