English as a Second Language/Intensive English Language Program (ESL/IELP)

Aims Community College is committed to its diverse population and welcomes all students interested in beginning or continuing their education goals. ESL/IELP courses, housed in the Adult Education & ESL/IELP department, are one of many pathways to college programs and professions. Through this program, adult students are able to access their community college while practicing and improving their English language skills. Students learn in an environment where they are immersed in the English language and engage in interactive and structure-based activities to improve their grammar, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. For information regarding a current course listing and enrollment, please contact Lucia Gonzales, Program Coordinator at or at 970.339.6634.

International Programs

By attracting students from all over the world to pursue their studies at Aims, the college strives to increase its diversity. International students from throughout Latin America, Asia, and Europe have attended Aims. While attaining a quality education at Aims, international students benefit from the unique opportunity to study at a small, friendly college in beautiful Northern Colorado. In addition, international students bring a wealth of cultural experience to our American students. Because many of our American students have not yet had the chance to travel abroad, taking classes and socializing with international students helps enrich their educational experience and cultural knowledge as well. The connections made between the international students, American students, and Aims faculty and staff broadens everyone’s educational and professional perspectives by opening up the opportunity for cultural exchanges through Study Abroad or Teach Abroad programs and by forging international friendships that can last a lifetime.
