We look for two things prior to making appointments for advisors:
You may make an appointment with an advisor by calling (970) 339-6443. You may be asked to meet with a faculty advisor depending upon program interest. Check out the advising page on our website for information and links to program worksheets to see requirements for all degree and certificate programs.
Aims has a number of preparatory and refresher course options to improve success for students who may struggle in certain areas like English or Math. Assessment of your background in reading, English, and math helps us determine the best course-level placement for you, and is required for all certificate or degree-seeking students. The Accuplacer is one assessment option, but there are others:
The boundaries of the Aims Junior College District align with the boundaries of 12 school districts in Weld County, plus small portions of Adams, Larimer, Logan and Morgan counties and the city and county of Broomfield. Residents of any of the following school districts qualify for in-district tuition rates: Greeley/Evans District 6, RE-1, RE-2, RE-3J, RE-4, RE-5J, RE-7, RE-8, RE-9J, RE-10J, RE-11J and RE-12. To see if you qualify for in-district tuition, contact the Admissions and Records office at (970) 339-6404.
Aims is an open enrollment college, so admission is not based on academic achievement or test scores. ACT or SAT scores are recommended and are used for advisement and placement. If you are seeking a degree and have not completed ACT or SAT exams prior to enrollment, you will be required to take a placement test. Aims requires placement tests to determine which classes best suit your abilities. You will not be required to take these tests if:
Yes. Many high school students take Aims classes. Your high school counselor can help you with the admissions procedure. See our High School Programs page for more information.
Your application is good for one year. If you wait for more than one year, you will need to submit a new application.
The Application for Admission is good for one year. If you have been away from Aims for one year or more, you will need to reapply. If you were making satisfactory progress in classes, you can usually pick up right where you left off. If you have been away for more than five years, you should contact the Testing Office to determine if your placement tests are still current.
You will receive an admissions packet that contains your user name and password, but you don’t have to wait that long to start exploring the student web. Go to our home page and click on Current Student. Below the login boxes, you will see a link that says Username/Password Help. Click this link and follow the instructions to find out your user name and to create a password.
Thank you for considering Aims! The Admissions Checklist contains the steps you will need to get started at Aims.
Prospective and returning students may apply online. You will be directed to create a login ID and PIN, and then you will be able to begin the full application. Please note: This login ID and PIN is only for submitting your application. You will be given a new username and password for myAims (the secure student portal). Another option is to fill out a paper application. This application is also available by asking a Registration & Records staff member on any campus. The Application for Admission is good for one year and there is no fee required.
Orientation is not mandatory, but it is highly recommended for students who have never been to college. See the current class schedule for dates and times. New Student Orientations are listed under the CSL 178 courses.
Students may apply for admission at any time, but it is strongly recommended that students apply and register for classes early.
It is with a heavy heart and disappointment that Aims Community College has decided to sunset their International Program, beginning the Summer Semester of 2018 and officially ending the Spring Semester of 2020. Effective immediately, Aims Community College is no longer accepting application for admission for all F-1 and M-1 visas.
Aims is an open enrollment school and anyone can take classes even if they did not complete high school or earned a GED. Students who have not completed high school or earned a GED will not be eligible for financial aid per federal rules.
Federal law requires that all male U.S. citizens and most male aliens living in the U.S. who are 18-25 be registered with Selective Service. Colorado law states that anyone who does not register for Selective Service cannot enroll at a state college or university. You may have already signed up for Selective Service at the post office or online. For more information about Selective Service, click here: www.sss.gov/.
We use these questions to determine if a student should be considered an in-state or out-of-state student. In-state students are charged less tuition than out-of-state students. You may choose not to fill out these questions, but you will be charged an out-of-state rate. More information about tuition classification.
Yes. We have admissions advisors who are knowledgeable about the different programs we offer and can guide students through the admissions process. Please call (970) 339-6292 to set up an appointment for an admissions counselor.
Students do not have to provide their high school transcripts in order to be admitted to Aims. It is possible to use a high school transcript to meet assessment requirements if ACT or SAT scores are included (see above for score requirements). The Financial Aid office may also require a transcript to show proof of graduation.
You should receive an email once your application has been processed if you gave us a personal email address. You should receive an acceptance packet within seven business days after your application has been processed.
