For everyone’s health and safety, we will be working and learning remotely until further notice. Our college building will also remain inaccessible during this time.
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 safely 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.
Fees for Summer Semester 2020
There will be no lab fees for summer semester 2020 courses at Aultman College. Courses will still occur, but lab fees usually associated with these courses will not be charged for students who are enrolled in them for summer semester 2020.
PLEASE NOTE: because of how the student billing system functions, you will see the lab fee on your original summer semester 2020 bill. Those lab fees will be removed from your student bill on May 19 and not owed by the student. For questions, please contact Rachel Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
The technology fee will be applied to bills this summer as software, online services, and support associated with this fee are being utilized at high volumes.
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 has been approved to receive money from this fund.
- There are rules on which students can receive aid and how it can be distributed.
- As soon as we have all of the information, we will share the next steps.
- Aultman College has not yet received these funds.
Financial Assistance for Students
We are making options available to extend the due date on student account balances until December 2020 for currently enrolled students. As everyone’s situation is unique, you will need to make an appointment with our biller to work out a plan specific to your financial needs.
- To set up a payment extension, 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. Please note that if you plan to graduate any semester in 2020, your balance must be paid in full by the end of the semester in which you intend to graduate.
- 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@example.com
- We have a student emergency fund available to provide one-time grants for students who experience a financial emergency. To learn more and apply, please visit the Student Emergency/Crisis Grant webpage.
