Can you install an aluminum wired fan into a ceiling wired copper box?

My fan has aluminum wiring and the ceiling outlet box has solid copper wires, is it possible for me to complete installation?

Assuming your fan is relatively new, it most likely has tinned copper wires not aluminum wires.  Just make up the connections with a appropriately sized wire nuts.

 

If you are still unsure, consult with an electrician licensed in your locale.
