FAQ for Positive Cases and Anyone Experiencing Symptoms of Illness

If you have a positive test for COVID-19, or experience any symptoms of illness, 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 experiencing symptoms of illness?

When someone tests positive and informs the COVID team:

  • The college will follow up with you and provide directions based on current guidelines
  • The college will work with you to accommodate clinicals and classwork

If you are experiencing ANY symptoms of illness: 

  • 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

 

Screening Process

All visitors must be screened before entering campus. 

For students: Due to the co-mingling of vaccinated and exempt students, all students who enter Aultman College must comply with infection prevention strategies to help protect our campus.

The following enhanced infection prevention strategies have been implemented and you must adhere to all the following guidelines:

Exempt Students:

• You are required to screen for symptoms at the Seventh Street entry point prior to entering Aultman College (after hours – screen at the emergency room entry).

  • Due to CMS requiring screening, you will no longer have access to the Aultman College front doors.

• A surgical mask, at a minimum, must be worn at all times (one will be provided at the screening station).

• An Aultman screening sticker must be worn at all times, as random audits will be conducted.

• Continue to practice social distancing.

• Continue to practice good cleaning and hand hygiene.

Vaccinated Students:

• Continue to self-screen and document on the Aultman portal if any symptoms are present.

• Contact [email protected] if you develop any symptoms.

• Prior to each clinical experience vaccinated students are required to document their self-screening on the Aultman Hospital Portal.

• Continue to practice social distancing.

• Continue to practice good cleaning and hand hygiene 

Faculty and staff: Daily recording of self-screening is no longer required. Please note, if you experience any symptoms of illness, please submit your electronic health screen via the Aultman Portal. Do not report to work or visit Employee/Colleague Health in person. Your electronic health submission notifies your manager and Employee/Colleague Health, which will work with you to determine your return-to-work date. Your health and recovery is most important, and submitting symptoms using the electronic app helps prevent the spread of the virus by staying home until Employee/Colleague Health determines your correct return-to-work date.

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

Summer Semester 2022

  • Vaccination: Vaccine for COVID-19, or an approved exemption, is required for access to the physical campus of Aultman College. Additionally, 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, the clinic is open Wednesdays from 9 am-11 am. Pfizer and Moderna vaccinations alternate each week and a sign will be posted outside the door indicating which vaccine will be administered.
  • Masks: Fully vaccinated individuals have the choice to wear a mask in non-patient or non-clinical areas, such as meeting rooms, classrooms, offices, etc. Those who are vaccine exempt approved will still be required to wear a mask during their time on campus. Whenever entering the hospital from any access point, masks will still be required in all common healthcare areas where patients may be encountered. This includes elevators, common hallways, entrances, cafeteria, etc. Students will still be required to follow masking requirements at their respective clinical sites. 
  • 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.

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.
