It's the ONLY one in the Department of Defense. It's the LARGEST in the world. How much better can it get? Let's see ... it's also accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. It's the Community College of the Air Force and you're already enrolled!

Earning an Associate of Applied Science degree is simple, since a great portion of it is already complete, merely by having attended Basic Military Training, Technical School and being awarded your 5-level. Airman Leadership School, the NCO- or SNCO-Academy and your 7-level don't hurt either. All this training IS worth something ... college credit which can lead to a degree ... YOUR degree!

This is not "just" an associate's degree; it's an applied associate's degree. What is the difference? An associate's degree is book knowledge; where as an applied associate's degree is hands-on and book knowledge. Your hands-on portion is almost, if not already complete, so why not take advantage of the education possibilities afforded to you and complete this degree?

The majority of students need approximately five general education courses to complete their degree requirements. These courses can be found on your Web Progress Report, using your Air Force Portal. Simply log on to the AF Portal using a government computer and go to the Air Force Virtual Education Center. Once there, click on CCAF Actions, then go to CCAF Web Progress Report and click on the hyperlink under Title. Everything you need to help you get closer to your goal ... a degree from the Community College of the Air Force!
