AIM for Success is a learning community program designed for students who need to develop their reading, writing, math and learning skills to achieve proficiency at the college level. AIM is offered in a block schedule and requires students to enroll in reading, writing, math and personal/career development courses for a minimum of 12 credits during the one-quarter program. AIM for Success is offered at each of the College's three main campuses: Fort Omaha, South Omaha and Elkhorn Valley. Enrollment in AIM is limited to a maximum of 18 students in each cohort group.
In the AIM for Success learning community, faculty and counselors work closely with students to provide academic and counseling support. Special features include diagnostic testing, interdisciplinary approaches to basic skills instruction, integrated counseling and tutorial services, career exploration, and extra-curricular activities.
The program’s ongoing support system has helped participants develop the skills and self-confidence needed to succeed in the classroom. Course completion rates average 85% for math, 84% for reading and nearly 83% for English. Retention rates are also impressive: 79% for AIM students compared to 48% for students college-wide.
Because of AIM’s reputation, students are eager to get into the program. Various social service agencies use it, and former AIM students often recommend it to family members and friends. Growing numbers of students seek out the program as a way to help them gain foundation skills they will need in college level courses.
