NOTE: Education at the American Institute of Metaphysics is not intended to serve as a substitute for education at a traditional college or university.  Because AIM does not seek to indoctrinate students into the mainstream, Western paradigm, traditional mathematics, literature, and science are not taught.  These disciplines are incorporated into many areas of study at AIM insofar as they can be made to apply in validation of the alternative, non-traditional disciplines and philosophies that are taught.  Degrees and credits are not transferable from AIM to other mainstream universities.  Therefore, students pursuing degrees at AIM are doing so to further their knowledge and skill base in their chosen disciplines.

Because so many AIM students are working adults, the home-study format is ideal.  Students are permitted to work at their own pace-- completing coursework when their lifestyle, work, home, and family responsibilities permit.
