General Education Mobile Program (GEM)

The General Education Mobile (GEM) Program is an exciting partnership between the Community College of the Air Force and Virginia Wesleyan University to offer General Education courses to meet the general education requirements for the CCAF associates in applied science. Virginia Wesleyan’s online courses enable students to complete their general education requirements during our mini-terms that are offered 4 times a year.
