GREELEY — The Aims Community College Board of Directors on March 5 voted to not raise tuition, the fourth straight year of a freeze on the rate.

The vote was announced in a news release issued the following day.

The freeze on tuition keeps the rate for students at Aims among the lowest in the state through the 2014-15 academic year.

“Many colleges are raising tuition, some even by double digits. But Aims Community College has pledged to keep college affordable and to make higher education an achievable goal to all the students in its tax district and beyond,” the release from Aims read. “The Aims Community College Board of Trustees remains committed to the community it serves and to preparing today’s students for success tomorrow. This commitment was reaffirmed at the March 5, 2014, meeting when tuition was frozen just in time for the summer and fall enrollment period, which begin in April of 2014.”

Founded in 1967 in Greeley, Aims has since established locations in Fort Lupton, Loveland and Windsor. Curriculum now includes 4,000 day, evening, weekend and online courses annually in more than 160 degree and certificate programs.
