tabMaxwell-Gunter Heritage
CCAF

April 1st, 1972, the Air Force established the Community College of the Air Force which, since then, has become the largest community college in the world.

The CCAF is the world's only degree granting institution for enlisted personnel and is regionally accredited through Air University by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Parallel to most civilian institutions, the associate in applied science awarded by the CCAF is a 64 semester hour program composed of technical education, general education, leadership and management studies. Students may acquire credits during basic military training, technical school, professional military education courses and taking college classes after arriving at their first duty station. These steps can catapult Airmen toward completion of other degrees, opening doors of possibilities and assisting in molding well-rounded service members. 

Enlisted Airmen are automatically enrolled in the CCAF on enlistment. They will maintain student status, providing them an opportunity to earn a diploma, as long as they are in the military. Only those who are wounded warriors may continue to pursue their certificate post separation.
