Air Force GEM Program at Excelsior College

GEM logoComplete Your CCAF General Education Requirements using the Air Force GEM Program at Excelsior College.

Through this program we can help you complete up to 15 credits toward the general education requirements of your CCAF degree.

There are five general education areas required by CCAF: oral communication, written communication, mathematics, social science, and humanities.

Let CMVE complete a thorough evaluation of your CCAF credits toward the degree of your choice, or a ‘best fit’ degree that our military advisors suggest for you.  Just email your unofficial CCAF and other college transcripts to military@excelsior.edu.  We have liberal transfer policies and low residency credit requirements designed to accept 100% of your CCAF program credits.
