Aims Community College is a multi-campus institution and each campus offers a variety of assessment tests and services.

Assessment Testing

Assessment is designed to assist students in understanding their current academic levels and to aid them and their advisors in the selection of college courses. According to the State of Colorado and Aims Community College institutional procedures, all incoming students, with the exception of High School students, planning to register will be required to take the Ruffalo Noel-Levitz College Student Inventory (CIS). In addition to this, students may be encouraged to assess in writing and math.

New and returning students are responsible for making arrangements at the Testing Center to provide assessment scores prior to conferring with an advisor and registering. Assessment scores may be turned in or self-reported. Visit our website at https://www.aims.edu/student/testing/tests/assessment.php for information on the various options for meeting assessment.
