West Virginia Northern Community College (Northern), with campuses located in Weirton and in Wheeling, is already meeting with and supporting students impacted by the recent announcement by Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) of a “pause in registrations and enrollment beyond the spring term.”  Two of Northern’s three campuses are located within a 10–25-minute drive from EGCC’s Steubenville campus.  Northern also boasts an extensive array of online courses that can be completed from a distance.

"We are deeply committed to the success and well-being of every student. In times of transition, our priority is to provide a supportive environment where students can seamlessly continue their educational journey. Northern’s close proximity enables impacted students to continue their studies either online from home or via a short commute to one of Northern’s conveniently located campuses," said Dr. Daniel Mosser, President of West Virginia Northern Community College.
