Aims understands many of our students have work and family obligations that can make
it difficult to attend classes on a regular basis. As a result, we offer a wide variety
of classes in the evenings, on weekends, and online.
Please see our Schedule of Classes for a complete listing of all alternative-format classes. Evening classes are shaded
in gray, and weekend and online classes are listed in their own sections.
Courses offered through the Online Campus are conducted over the internet using web-based
course sites published in Aims Online. Not sure about taking an online class? For
more information on whether an online class would be a good fit for you, check out
the services and information offered in the menu, or make an appointment with an advisor. Please be aware that access to a reliable
computer and internet service are absolutely necessary and just part of the requirements
to be successful in an online class.
To make an appointment with an advisor to discuss our alternative-format classes,
please contact us.

testing. Proctored exams are dealt with between the instructor and the Aims Testing

available, you may arrange for a testing proctor or use Respondus Monitor and LockDown
