Consumer Information

The Federal Government requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information to all enrolled students. A letter is sent out annually to students that lists the information to be disclosed and refers students to this webpage for details.

Please use the links for additional information on the following topics:

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education.

FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records. These rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level, regardless of the student's age.

Annual Public Notification – August 2023

Aims is proud to offer educational programs online.

As a regionally accredited public college that participates in federal financial aid programs, Aims works to ensure that it provides students with accurate and complete regulatory information. This includes documenting compliance with the state laws in any state where educational programming is offered as required by the U.S. Department of Education's Program Integrity Rules. Not all states require state-specific authorizations and the activities that require authorization vary from state to state. 

Please direct any questions related to state authorizations to

National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements

Aims is a participating member in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). SARA is an agreement among member states, districts, and territories that establish comparable national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. SARA is overseen by the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) and administered by four regional education compacts. For the State of Colorado, this is the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE).  

Once a state has joined SARA, and then subsequently approves a school or college as a participating institution, a university may offer distance education to students residing in SARA participating states. Approved institutions will have no restrictions on advertising, marketing, and program offerings, and minimal restrictions on clinical practice and internships (no greater than 10 students at one location).

View a list of Colorado-approved institutions.

Additional measures are required for students that currently reside in a state not participating in SARA.  If you are a student who currently resides in California and would like to take a class at Aims, please contact
