Institutional Research

IR collects, analyzes, and reports data on a variety of topics, including student enrollment, faculty and staff demographics, financial performance, and academic outcomes.

Learning Center

As a professional student, you are joining an elite population of learners. You have the opportunity to create and direct your own learning environment. Some students believe that they will be able to keep the same strategies that were used in undergraduate study and simply work harder. A more successful academic strategy is to adjust your approach based on the tremendous volume of material, limited time, the essential components of learning and your personal learning styles and strengths. Our Learning Center can help.


The on-campus Library is an active partner in the educational and research activities of the university. Through its spaces within the Aneal Mohan Kohli Academic and Information Technology Center (Kohli Center), its digital and print collections, and its services, the Library reaches nearly all faculty, staff and students. The library has seven affiliate hospitals throughout Northeast Ohio that it supports in the areas of print circulation and access to e-resources.

Office of the Registrar

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for maintaining and archiving student records, the student registration process, enrollment reporting for the institution to state and federal agencies and degree audit and conferrals. Current students and alumni can contact the Office of the Registrar to request official transcripts, enrollment verifications and degree verifications. Student registration questions and inquiries to view a student’s record should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.

Student Accessibility Services

Qualified students are encouraged to disclose known disabilities and to request reasonable accommodation as early as possible. Students who do not disclose disabilities and request accommodation until they have encountered academic difficulty may be jeopardizing their chances of completing the program.
