In 2006, Aims began to study the retention rates of students who had remedial needs and decided to implement a program to better serve students with remedial needs. The FYE (First Year Experience) course, created for the Emerging Scholars program, was expanded to include students not in Emerging Scholars who wanted to take a FYE course.
