There are always points in your career — and your life — in which you want to move forward. You want to improve; you want to feel inspired and reach new goals. Perhaps you want to qualify for a promotion, finish your degree, or enrich your life through learning. Whatever your motivation, a quality education can be the catalyst to get you where you want to go.

It’s Metal Trades’s mission to give you every advantage to get ahead. That’s why we’ve partnered with Eastern Gateway Community College. Through the Metal Trades Free College benefit, you and your family members can now earn an associate degree completely online–for FREE.

Eastern Gateway is an accredited community college, a member of the University System of Ohio, and is one of the fastest-growing public colleges in the country. It’s an open access public college governed by the Ohio Board of Regents and accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Visit Metal Trades’s website for more information on member benefits.

Eastern Gateway students have transferred to over 1,000 public and private universities, colleges, and community colleges, in almost every state and territory, all across the United States.  

If your ultimate goal is to transfer your Eastern Gateway credits to another school, we encourage you to call the admissions office of the school you plan to attend to understand any transfer criteria.  While credits earned at EGCC, a public, regionally accredited college, are not guaranteed to transfer to the program of your choice, we know that thousands of our students have successfully done so.
