CCAF graduation May 9

ccaf
This year’s Community College of the Air Force graduation and Higher Degree Recognition Ceremony at Edwards is 2:30-4:30 p.m., May 9 at Club Muroc.

The event will honor the October 2012 and April 2013 classes and will additionally recognize enlisted airmen who have completed their higher level degree from a civilian college.

One of the major goals of the Air Force is to assist Airmen in their professional and personal development. The prime vehicle for achieving this goal is education. CCAF is the largest community college in the world, exclusively for Air Force enlisted members. It was activated in 1972 in order to gain academic recognition for the technical training conducted by Air Force schools. CCAF holds Regional Accreditation through the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and grants the Associate of Applied Science degree.

Since 1977, over 2.7 million Airmen have had the opportunity to receive a CCAF degree. In 2012, CCAF awarded a total of 20,148 degrees to 18,949 students. Edwards members earned 130 CCAF degrees this year. This represents 6.7 percent of the Edwards enlisted population, slightly better than the Air Force average. Our enlisted members also earned 29 bachelor degrees or higher from civilian colleges, an all-time high for Edwards and more than double last year’s total.

Dress for the CCAF Graduation Ceremony will be service dress for graduates and participants in the ceremony. For guests, dress is the duty uniform of the day for military and business casual for civilians.
