Prairie Building

The Fort Lupton campus began with the Prairie Building, which was recently renovated. The Prairie Building is where you'll find what your need to help you achieve your educational goals, including:

The Nurse Aide Certificate and BUENO HEP programs are also housed in the Prairie Building, which is where you will complete your general education classes. The BUENO-HEP program is a partnership between Aims Fort Lupton and CU Boulder to offer GED and/or postsecondary assistance to migratory and seasonal farmworkers and their children.

Aims staff will welcome you and direct you where you need to go as well as answer any questions you have. This includes general questions about financial aid, FAFSA, testing, tuition, cashiering, B&N book orders, enrollment and advising. Fort Lupton staff can connect you with the necessary people and resources if needed. 

Fort Lupton has an on-site Pathway Advisor, Alejandra Gallardo, to help you navigate your education as you pursue your goals. Visit the Meet Your Advisor page to get in touch with your Pathway Advisor. 

At the Fort Lupton Learning Commons you will find a wealth of academic resources including our highly skilled team of Learning Resource Technicians (LRTs). LRTs are a go-to resource for student technology access, assistance, and support. The space is equipped with a computer lab, printers, study areas and library. The Learning Commons is the place for students to borrow various technology and equipment needed to reach their academic goals, including laptops with current software and security, tablets and hot spots. Reserve textbooks are also available for short term loans for a variety of courses. 

 

Academic Testing is also administered through the Learning Commons. All testing will be done via appointment only - students can email, call or stop into the Fort Lupton Learning Commons to make an appointment. Visit Testing Center - Fort Lupton Campus for more information.
