HENNIKER, N.H. — New England College (NEC) will be making it easier for servicemembers of the U.S. Air Force to earn their associate’s degree through a partnership with the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF).
NEC will offer the general education courses Airmen need to complete an Associate of Applied Science degree as part of the CCAF’s General Education Mobile (GEM) program. Servicemembers will be eligible for a special military tuition rate of $750 per 4-credit-hour course.
New England College’s online program structure makes it possible for servicemembers to complete their course requirements at an accelerated pace, while offering the flexibility to complete assignments without interfering with military duties. Military personnel with temporary duty assignments may exit and re-enter their degree program online with no penalties.
NEC is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. (NEASC) through its Commission on Institutions of Higher Education. New England College opened its doors in 1946 to educate veterans returning from World War II, and has been designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media, publisher of G.I.Jobs Magazine, every year since the award’s inception in 2003.
“New England College has always supported the educational needs of our military community,” said Sarah White, Director of Online and Custom Education at NEC. “We understand the unique scheduling challenges and responsibilities that Airmen can face when pursuing a degree. We are excited about expanding our offerings to support the needs of CCAF and look forward to working with the Air Force.”
The Community College of the Air Force provides enlisted Airmen with the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree with a combination of training related to their work, and general education requirements. Students are required to take five general education courses not offered by the CCAF from a regionally accredited college in the categories of math, written communication, oral communication, humanities and social sciences.
CCAF, which was established in 1972, partners with select regionally accredited civilian academic institutions to make general education courses available in an online format. More than 23,000 servicemembers receive an Associate of Applied Science degree each year through CCAF.
With online technology powered by Bisk, New England College provides anywhere, anytime learning from any computer or mobile device. Students learn on their own time via video lectures, interactive exercises, chat rooms, discussion boards and downloadable video files. Students will also receive the same guidance and support that is the hallmark of NEC’s traditional on-campus programs.
