CCAF General Education Mobile (GEM) at Waldorf

Waldorf University is proud to participate in the Community College of the Air Force’s (CCAF) General Education Mobile (GEM) program. As a GEM-approved school, Waldorf provides Airmen with general education courses needed to meet CCAF AAS requirements.

GEM enables Airmen to sign up for their general education requirements in a single block of courses from the same university, providing greater educational continuity and with eight week classes allows for faster completion of an airman's associate degree.

With the GEM program, students near the beginning of their education will enroll for general education classes as a single five-course sequence taken online. Credits will transfer and apply toward the CCAF degree.

Military and Veteran Supportive
Airmen can complete classes from anywhere in the world at a time that works best with their schedules. Courses start almost every month and Waldorf offers a number of benefits including providing textbooks.

In addition, Waldorf follows the American Council on Education (ACE) guidelines in awarding transfer credits for previous college classes, work and even military experience should you decide to go beyond an AAS degree.

Waldorf University is a signatory of the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding for Post-Secondary Educational Institutions (DoD MOU) and complies with all requirements of the President's Executive Order "Establishing Principles of Excellence for Educational Institutions Serving Service Members, Spouses and Other Family Members"

Waldorf also caps our undergraduate tuition rate at $250/credit hour for those utilizing military Tuition Assistance (TA).
