General Education Mobile (GEM)

What is GEM? GEM is an exciting partnership between CCAF and civilian academic institutions

General Education Mobile

Welcome to the University of West Florida's general education programs in support of the CCAF GEM program. The GEM program is a partnership between the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and approved academic institutions. GEM courses offered by UWF are in a distance learning format to provide worldwide access reducing the impact of deployments, PCS and family commitments.

This program is specifically for the active duty Air Force students who desire to complete their CCAF degree and meet the 15 semester hour general education degree requirements with UWF's general education courses. 

Apply and register for the GEM Program.  Service Members who are attending courses at UWF specifically for the GEM Program are reminded to apply as a non-degree seeking student.

Tuition for GEM/UWF online courses: Tuition and fees for GEM courses is the same as UWF's online courses. Out of state students must complete the out-of-state tuition waiver form

When enrolling in a course, please be sure to complete your Tuition Assistance (TA) application within the Air Force Virtual Education Center (AFVEC).
