Transferring Credit into Aims

Undergraduate credit hours awarded within the prior 10 years from any Regionally-accredited higher education institution may be transferred to an Aims Community College degree or certificate program if the courses apply to the completion of the student's graduation requirements.

Credits older than 10 years will also receive careful consideration for transfer. The college reserves the right to examine all credits to determine equivalency of content. Obsolete course content is not considered equivalent. To be eligible for transfer, courses must have been completed with a "C" grade or better at an accredited college or university, or other approved institution.

Students must have a current application on file with Admissions, Registration and Records and must have a degree or certificate declared. Transfer credits will be accepted only if the course(s) satisfy requirements for the Aims degree or certificate the student is seeking.

Steps for obtaining a transfer credit evaluation at Aims:

  1. Apply for Admission to Aims and declare a degree or certificate.
  2. Order official transcripts from all previously attended institutions and have them sent electronically or by mail: 

    Admissions and Registration
    PO Box 69
    Greeley, CO 80632

    Although we prefer transcripts to be sent directly from your college or university, we will accept a hand-carried official transcript only if it is sealed and signed by a college official. Unofficial and opened official may only be used for course placement.
  3. Official transcripts will be evaluated in the order they are received. The completed evaluation will be emailed to the student’s Aims email account within 30 days of transcript receipt.
