With the expansion of closures throughout the state and nation, the college leadership team has decided that classes will run entirely online through the end of spring semester 2020. The building will also remain inaccessible through the end of the semester.
Initially we had hoped to return to campus, but for everyone’s health and safety, we will continue working and learning remotely through the end of the semester.
Though they may be altered, all college operations will continue in a remote/virtual manner to the best of our ability. We appreciate your continued understanding during this rapidly changing situation. The one thing that remains consistent is our desire to support you in your educational journey.
Please refer to the following FAQs about the college’s response.
If you need assistance, please email email@example.com or call/text 330-363-6347.
Summer Semester 2020
We are happy to confirm that we will be offering courses for summer semester 2020.
Foundational education, health sciences, and social work courses will be held online. Radiography and ASN courses will begin online and (hopefully) incorporate in-person sessions by the latter part of the term. Radiography and nursing program directors will communicate schedule details.
We continue to work diligently to get our students back into the field to complete program requirements, but we will proceed only when it is safe to do so. Course delivery options will be continually evaluated in the event that campus is not accessible for the remainder of the summer semester.
As the majority of summer semester will be online, we will not charge a parking fee for any students enrolled for summer semester 2020. When access to campus reopens, you will be able to use the gated student lot across from the college.
Front Desk Services
The college main line (330-363-6347) will take voicemails, which will be returned within one business day Monday-Friday. We encourage you to utilize the staff and faculty directory to contact the specific person you need to reach.
Student Resources for Online Learning
Please recognize that many courses are being offered online for the first time. Please grant your instructor understanding and patience. Reach out to your professor if something doesn’t look “right” with an online course or you notice missing links/content.
