We are pleased to share a major announcement with all of you. Allied Health Institute is changing its name! Yes, that’s right! As of today, Allied Health Institute has become Orion College. We are making this change in order to expand the variety of programs that we offer, including the addition of bachelor’s level programs. Students enrolling at Orion College will have many more program options to choose from.
What does this name change mean for you? You are now students of Orion College and you will have the prestige of being graduates of Orion College as well! Your course schedules, curriculum, and fabulous instructors remain unchanged.
This is a significant transition for our school and as such, the obvious changes may not happen all at once; for example, you may still see the Allied Health Institute name printed on some of your documents or hear it mentioned in previously recorded lectures. Please be assured we are working diligently to update all aspects of our school to our new name as quickly as possible.
We look forward to introducing new and exciting programs and degree offerings over the coming years as we complete this transition. Please share in our excitement and our anticipation of great things to come as Allied Health Institute ends the year as Orion College!
