State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said much of the coordination involves finding air travel for Americans who want to leave.
Angry street protests continue as demonstrators demand an end to the three-decade rule of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
Crowley said the U.S. is boosting its diplomatic corps in Cairo and three other locations to help expedite the departure of American citizens.
He noted that the international airport in Cairo continues to be open every day around the clock.
The Obama administration continues to walk a fine line on Egypt.
Crowley said it is not up to the U.S. to decide whether Egypt gets a new government.
At the same time, he cited a need for reforms and said any transition should be orderly.
The U.S. has urged restraint on both sides while calling on the Egyptian government to address legitimate grievances of its people in a peaceful, fair manner.
Mubarak is a key U.S. ally in the volatile Middle East and has played a big role in ongoing peace efforts between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
Meantime, the Obama administration has dispatched a senior U.S. diplomat to Cairo to push Mubarak's government to agree to democratic reforms.
Frank Wisner was the U.S. ambassador to Egypt from 1986-1991.
