Admission Process at AIMS
To begin your journey toward a fulfilling and successful career in healthcare, you must first begin the admission process. If you haven't already done so, please contact our admissions team to learn how we can help you achieve your career goals.
Meet the Admissions Team
The first step in the admission process is to schedule a school visit. During your visit, you will meet one-on-one with an admissions team member. Think of this initial meeting as an opportunity to learn about the college, our program offerings, and the admissions requirements. Based on your background and experience, we will help you decide on the career and program that is the best fit for you.
After discussing your career options, you will be taken on a tour of our campus. This will give you the opportunity to see our classrooms and medical labs up close. You may even get the chance to see some classes in action.
Student Accounts and Financial Aid
During your first visit to the school, you will learn about tuition costs and funding options. You will also have the opportunity to meet with one of our financial aid advisors. AIMS Education is currently a Title IV eligible school for clock hour programs. An application for degree and credit-bearing programs is pending. A financial aid advisor can provide additional information.
Application and Enrollment
Once you have gathered all of the necessary information, submitted your FAFSA (if applicable), and decided on a program, the next step is to inform the admissions team that you are ready to apply. Admission applications can be submitted online or in person. Applicants are required to submit all relevant admission documents, take an entrance exam, and complete an interview.
All admission documents need to be submitted prior to taking the entrance exam. If any required documents are missing, the applicant may need to reschedule the exam. In certain cases, the applicant may be allowed to proceed with the entrance exam.
After submitting a complete application package, applicants will be required to take the Wonderlic or TEAS exam. Applicants who are not required to take an entrance exam will move directly to the interview.
If the applicant receives a passing score on the appropriate entrance exam, they will proceed to the interview. Applicants for certificate or degree programs will be required to interview with the program director, director of academic affairs, and/or director of enrollment.
Certificate of Achievement programs have open enrollment. Applicants who meet the minimum admission requirements will be allowed to enroll. Applicants must sign an enrollment contract and complete all enrollment documents.
Certificate and degree programs have a selective application process. The admissions committee oversees the admission process and must approve all admission decisions. Meeting the minimum requirements for admission does not guarantee an applicant will be admitted into a program. From the pool of applicants, those who are considered most qualified will be admitted. Applicants for selective programs will be notified once the admissions committee has made a decision. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed until all required documents are submitted.
AIMS has a rolling admission policy. Once a start date is determined for a program, students are welcome to apply and/or enroll in the program. Applications are not accepted for programs without an official start date. Once a student is accepted and/or fulfills all admission requirements for a particular program, he or she may enroll in that program. Admissions remain open until the maximum number of students has been reached for the cohort.
Certain programs at AIMS have a selective application process. Students are required to apply for the program and be accepted. Meeting the minimum requirements for enrollment does not guarantee a student will be accepted into a program that has a selective application process. The following programs have a selective application process:
- Associate of Applied Science in Cardiovascular Technology
- Associate of Applied Science in Diagnostic Medical Sonography
- Associate of Applied Science in MRI Technology
- Associate of Applied Science in Neurodiagnostic Technology
- Associate of Applied Science in Surgical Technology
- Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography Certificate
