Step 2: Send an Official Transcript to the Registration & Records Office for Evaluation

To have your college credit transferred from another institution, please send your official transcript to the address listed below as soon as possible. The sooner your transcripts are received, the sooner they can be evaluated for progress toward your degree. Meeting with your advisor to select classes at Aims will be most helpful after you have sent your official transcript to Registration and Records.

Note: a transcript is only considered official if it is sent directly to Aims from your previous college (electronically) or arrives in a sealed envelope (physical mail). Transcripts that have been opened before delivery to Aims and electronic transcripts that are sent to the student first and then forwarded to Aims will both be considered unofficial.
