Aultman College leadership met with its Board of Directors Tuesday about freezing tuition for the upcoming year. The Board agreed unanimously to freeze tuition for the academic year 2022-23.
President Jean Paddock said the decision to not increase costs to students was an easy one considering the health care shortage in our communities. “We understand our mission as a health care-focused institution is to prepare professionals who lead our community to improved health. Our students are determined to pursue a career in the health care field, putting themselves on the front lines to help others. In recognition of the importance of this pursuit, we feel it is our duty to adjust on our administrative side to hold tuition for the upcoming academic year,” said Dr. Paddock.
The tuition freeze is the latest in a series of college actions to assist students interested in the health care field. Aultman College recently announced in February that students can be admitted into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program without having to take standardized testing. In November 2021, Nursingschoolalmanac.com recognized Aultman College as one of the highest-ranked programs in the Akron-Canton region.
Aultman College is accepting applications for Fall 2022 until August 1, with direct entry seats available in nursing, social work, medical assisting, and health sciences.
