Welcome to the SSC!
About the SSC
The Student Success Center's (SSC) mission is to extend guidance, assistance, and support students to recognize their desired educational and career goals. Since learning is a continuous process, we believe in offering programs and services to students to enhance academic success. The best part about all of the services within the SSC is that they are FREE to ALL students.
Attending college is a big decision and an even bigger opportunity. No matter your reason for enrolling in Aultman College, one thing is certain: to make the most of this opportunity, you need to navigate through the support services offered on campus.
Disability Resources: The Student Success Center collaborates with students who have disabilities to coordinate services that enable equal access to education and college life. For additional information, contact the Student Success Services Coordinator at 330-363-6847 or by email [email protected].
Some of the free services available in the SSC to aid students in their educational journey of self-fulfillment include:
The first step to being successful is knowing your specific learning style. Take the VARK learning style assessment to identify your best method of learning. CLICK HERE to take the VARK learning style assessment.

Career Development Services
Are you looking for a change in employment? Do you need assistance creating or updating your resume? Stop into the SSC to review job opportunities within Aultman Health Foundation or businesses in the community. Information is also emailed out to your college inbox. Still haven't found what you're looking for? Visit the Strengthening Stark website by clicking HERE.
Watch for upcoming Resume Writing Workshops to learn what employers are looking for on your resume. Need information sooner? Make an appointment with the SSC coordinator to discuss your specific needs.
Did you have an IEP in high school? Did you receive disability resources at another college or university? Not sure if you qualify for these services? The college adheres to all laws and regulations as outlined on the ADA.gov website. Students applying for disability resources may request a private, distraction-free room for testing, extended time for tests/quizzes, and recorded lectures, just to name a few. A request by the student and supporting documentation from a healthcare provider is required to begin this process. Set up an appointment with the SSC coordinator to discuss your personal needs.
Emergency Laptop Loans
While all students are required to have their own devices for use (see the Technology Resources Acceptable and Responsible Use Policy in the College Catalog), we understand that emergencies happen. Maybe your hard drive crashed, the battery died, or you accidentally left it at home. Loaner laptops are available in the Student Success Center (SSC) during regular business hours in these cases, but there is a limit of 15 laptop loans per student per semester. In the case of an emergency, loaner laptops should be returned to the SSC by the end of the business day. You can discuss extenuating circumstances with the SSC coordinator, but this limit will ensure that enough loaner laptops are available.

The college offers FREE eTutoring collaboration with OhioLINK (powered by Tutor Ocean), which provides additional tutoring options from across the state of Ohio. Many subject areas are available.

Test Taking Tips
Learning how to navigate and "dissect" test questions, especially in healthcare courses, can be a challenge for many students. Review this resource to aid in your success by clicking HERE.
The SSC also offers Midterm Mania and Finals Frenzy each semester to provide added individual or small group sessions for students to gain the knowledge needed to tackle tests, midterms, and final exams. Meet with faculty and staff to discuss resources from the following areas: nursing foundational education, library, test-taking and stress management, and personal health. Watch for days and times in your college email and in the weekly Pulse e-newsletter.
Not sure how to effectively utilize your time or where to begin to organize all of your assignments, personal obligations, and work? Feel like you don't have enough hours in the day to complete all of your tasks? Start to organize your time by reviewing these resources:
- Time Management Video
- Time Management Brochure
- Utilize a planner: each semester, upper-level students provide a free "Planner Presentation" for all students. Tips and tricks to stay organized with assignments are addressed.
- Plot out your weekly "to-dos" on a planning sheet. An example is available by clicking HERE.
Schedule an appointment with the SSC coordinator for individual assistance. Long-term, recurring meetings are also available for routine check-ins to aid in your success.
Getting extra assistance via tutoring is a great way to aid in your success! And the best part about it is that it's FREE. Don't wait until you've fallen behind to reach out. Some of our long-time, regular users, are students on the Dean's and President's lists. We offer both in-person and Zoom options for appointments in many subject areas: A&P, chemistry, math, statistics, physics, pharmacology, radiography, and nursing. Looking for a subject that isn't listed? Reach out to the SSC coordinator to follow up. The semester's tutoring schedule can be located at the bottom of this page.
The college offers writing consultations free of charge to all students. You can make an appointment with one of our tutors or use one from our online eTutoring collaborative. You must plan ahead for this service as feedback may take 1-2 weeks. Consult the tutoring section for more information on login instructions and available resources.
