TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- One of your most valuable benefits in the Air Force Reserve is access to outstanding higher education opportunities.
One such opportunity, the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is a fully accredited college headquartered at Air University, Maxwell AFB, AL. It is the world's largest community college with an enrollment of over 300,000 active duty, guard and reserve members.
CCAF offers 67 different associate degrees in five general areas of study. The student
earns an associate degree after completing just 64 semester hours including 24 hours of technical training in his/her career field. Next, the student can use these credits at accredited four- year institutions to earn a baccalaureate degree either through a traditional campus setting or distance learning.
Additionally, Air University aligns CCAF degree programs with industry standards that lead to certification eligibility upon completion of an applicable degree giving you a competitive edge in the job market.
To further awareness of CCAF programs the 507th Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) has initiated a program to mentor all newly awarded journeyman (5-level qualification) on CCAF. The point of contact for this initiative will be the 507 wing training office who will set up appointments with each individual on a one-on-one basis.
All airmen are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the knowledge and experience of our education specialists to maximize your educational experience.
