It's a new year and a perfect time to start or complete a college degree.  For some, the process can be a little confusing, however, the Education Center team is available to help.  Here are some resources to get started. 
  • A monthly two-day workshop called Accessing Higher Education, provides information on career and personal goal setting.  It also covers factors that contribute to selecting an education program, school, funding and admission.
  • To use military tuition assistance, eligible service members are required annually to complete the MilTA briefing, offered weekly.  This brief provides do’s and don’ts to be successful using the program. 
  • For eligible service members who wish to earn a Community College of the Air Force degree, consider General Education Mobile.  GEM offers general education courses to meet CCAF’s Associate of Applied Science degree requirements.  GEM reduces the CCAF educational impact of deployments, permanent change of station and family commitments.
  • For CCAF graduates pursuing a bachelor’s degree, consider the Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative program.  The Air Force and civilian institutions partnered to provide CCAF graduates with advanced education opportunities at the baccalaureate level. 
  • To ensure the school has signed the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding, go to TA DECIDE.  This tool is designed to aid tuition assistance participants in making choices on schools and education programs at any degree level. 

Eligible participants can contact one of our education counselors for schedules, times and further assistance.  Our goal is to ensure Airmen are informed consumers of a college education. 

The Education Office is located in Bldg. 251.  For more information, call 882-8141.
