Courses offered vary term by term. Contact Admissions at admissionsinfo@aimc.edu to get information about upcoming classes. A Non-Degree Seeking application is required with an application fee of $100. Courses in this series cost $185 per unit for non-degree seekers. If a student later enrolls in the AIMC program, these courses can be transferred into the MSTAM or Dual Degree program with the standard transfer unit fee. Financial aid is not available to Non-Degree Seeking students. Non-degree seeking students are expected to meet all class requirements including attendance and completion of assignments.


"One of my favorite things about AIMC is the sense of community. We come together to support each other through challenges. Instead of a sense of competitiveness between students, there is a caring community that lifts everybody up. The faculty and staff are approachable and provide wonderful support during your graduate journey."
