CCAF General Education Mobile (GEM) at Western

GEM LogoWestern Technical College is proud to partner with the Community College of the Air Force to help Airmen complete their CCAF Degree's General Education requirements.

Participating in the General Education Mobile (GEM) enables students to complete up to 15 credits at Western that transfer toward the general education requirements of their CCAF degree providing greater educational continuity and faster completion of an airman's associate's degree.

Airmen must develop a CCAF education goal in the Air Force Virtual Education Center (AFVEC) and request Tuition Assistance (TA). 

Why Western Technical College?

  • Quality online courses meeting CCAF standards and degree completion requirements.
  • Small college that provides one-on-one assistance and advising to all students, not just the ones on campus.
  • Award prior learning credit for learning gained through military experiences and years of service.
  • Offer AAS programs that can be completed beyond your CCAF degree!
