Community College of the Air Force (CCAF)
Once enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, Airmen are automatically enrolled in CCAF and can begin completing the 64 semester hours needed to achieve the Associate in Applied Science degree. Of those 64 semester hours, 49 are achieved through the Air Force; the remaining 15 semester hours of general education must be attained at a civilian institution.
Columbia College requires the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) transcript for credit evaluation. Other military documents may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but the CCAF is the only guaranteed transcript for evaluation. Contact MSC@ccis.edu with questions.
