FAQ for Positive Cases and Persons Under Investigation

If you have a positive test for COVID-19, exhibit symptoms, or have been notified that you have been exposed, please email [email protected] as soon as possible for assistance. Include your contact information so that the COVID team at the college can quickly follow up with you.

What happens when someone is positive or is under investigation?

When someone tests positive and informs the COVID team:

  • The college will follow up with you and provide directions based on symptoms, date of test, etc.
  • Your local health department will make the decision on when you can physically return to campus
  • The health department will issue you a letter that says you can return to campus, which must be sent to the college's COVID nurse team before you can physically come to the college
  • The college will work with you to accommodate clinicals and classwork

When someone is a person under investigation (example: you are screened and exhibit symptoms or were notified you were around someone who was positive):

  • Please contact the COVID nurse team ASAP with your contact information and details
  • They will contact you and follow up on what the next steps are (specific to each situation)
  • The college will work with you to accommodate clinicals and classwork

 

Self-Screening Process

All visitors must be screened before entering campus. 

For students: Daily recording of self-screening is no longer required, with exceptions for students in clinical courses (please follow the clinical site's screening requirements). Please self-monitor your symptoms if you feel unwell, do not enter the campus, report your absence to your supervisor, and email the COVID nurse at [email protected]

Faculty and staff: Daily recording of self-screening is no longer required. However, please self-monitor your symptoms if you feel unwell, do not enter the campus, report your absence to your supervisor, and email the COVID nurse at [email protected].

Visitors: All visitors are required to screen at the 7th Street Aultman screening station before entering the building.

Fall Semester 2021

  • The semester will begin, as scheduled, on Tuesday, September 7. Courses will be offered as identified on the fall 2021 course schedule. If you have additional questions, please contact your adviser.
  • We are doing everything possible to keep our students on-site for clinicals, field experiences, and practicums. We know how much you value those experiences and how critical they are to your education and development as a health care professional.  As we work alongside and with our community partners, they may decide to end student access at any point during the fall semester. If this occurs, we will let you know as soon as possible and plan accordingly.
  • Vaccination: While highly recommended, having the vaccine for COVID-19 is not required for access and participation in Aultman College activities. Students attending clinical rotations will need to follow the clinical site's expectations regarding screening and protocols related to COVID. This may include mandated vaccination.  Should you wish to get vaccinated, please call employee health services at 330-363-6016 to schedule your appointments. 
  • Masks: All persons will need to wear a mask at all times when inside the college building and follow all requirements for all clinical sites. 
  • Social Distancing: 6-feet of social distancing is a minimum expectation for all areas of the College for both vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals.
  • Main Office: The college front desk will be open on Monday through Thursday from 8 am-4:30 pm with representatives from various areas available.

    We encourage you to utilize the staff and faculty directory to contact the specific person you need to reach via email or by leaving a voicemail.

  • Printers/copiers will be available in the second-floor hallway, library, and student success center for student use when you are on campus.
  • Student Success Center and Library: The SSC and library are available to students from 6 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Sunday.
  • Building access for students: The college building will be open for student access by badge access, 6 a.m.-11 p.m. Monday-Sunday. 
  • Safety glasses will no longer be required in college laboratory sessions unless an instructor requires them. Please note that eye protection for clinicals will be based on the clinical site’s requirements and policy.
  • Failure to meet requirements for masks, safety goggles, and social distancing will result in one warning requiring immediate corrective action. A subsequent infraction will result in indefinite exclusion from campus/campus experiences and disciplinary action in accordance with student conduct policies.

 

Lab and Parking Fees

There will be lab and parking fees for fall semester 2021 courses at Aultman College.

The technology fee will be applied to bills as software, online services, and support associated with this fee are being utilized at high volumes.

 

CARES Act

The recently passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act contained a provision to establish a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. This fund provides money to colleges and universities so that they can issue emergency grants directly to students whose lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Aultman College was approved to receive money from this fund.
  • There were two application periods for CARES funding. Applications are now closed.

 For reporting information about the administration of CARES Act funds, please visit the CARES Act reporting webpage.

 

Financial Assistance for Students

 Tuition is due in full by the add/drop date. We understand that everyone’s situation is unique, please make an appointment with our biller to work out a plan specific to your financial needs.

  • To set up a payment plan, you must book a meeting with Rachel Taylor, student billing specialist, by clicking this link. Rachel will be able to discuss your financial options and work with you to formulate a plan for payment.
  • We also are strongly urging all our students to file the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You can do this entirely online, and it is free to complete it at www.fafsa.ed.gov. You could be missing out on thousands of dollars in federal and state loans and grants: the only way to find out is to file the FAFSA. If you need any assistance with the FAFSA, please email [email protected]
  • Changes to Your Family’s Financial Situation: If you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return (for example, if you’ve lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid adjusted. Complete the FAFSA questions as instructed on the application (including the transfer of tax return and income information), submit your FAFSA form, then contact the school you plan to attend to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.
