The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is a worldwide multi-campus community college established to meet the educational needs of Air and Space Force enlisted personnel. CCAF is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges (SACSCC) as an occupational educational institution.
The College is operated by and for the benefit of approximately 270,000 active, guard, and reserve enlisted personnel. Base Education counselors serve as academic advisors for CCAF students and are the primary means of communication between CCAF and eligible enlisted personnel. Academic credit for CCAF is earned at technical schools, duty stations, and college campuses throughout the world.
Specific degree programs in each specialty area are designed to provide students with the theoretical background to perform as technical experts and competent supervisors in their fields. The primary goal of the CCAF is to allow airmen to progress toward and ultimately earn an Associate Degree in their Air Force or Space Force specialty with minimum disruptions from Permanent Changes of Station (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), and shift work.
