Air Force members now able to complete general education requirements through BGSU
BGSU first public four-year university in Ohio to offer this program
Bowling Green State University is the first public four-year university in Ohio to partner with the Community College of the Air Force’s (CCAF) General Education Mobile (GEM) program. CCAF students now have the opportunity to complete their general education requirements through BGSU.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with the Air Force,” said Barbara Henry, assistant vice president of Nontraditional and Military Student Services. “We know that access to general education courses reduces the time to degree completion for airmen and increases opportunities for promotion within the Air Force. Our partnership provides airmen a flexible, online schedule with personalized assistance to accommodate their demanding schedules and duties.”
“It is part of our mission to make education attainable for everyone,” said Joe Whitehead Jr., Ph.D., provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “Bowling Green State University welcomes members of the Air Force through our three Air University-Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative degree completion partnerships. This program is another opportunity for BGSU to respond to the needs and provide access to higher education for our military personnel.”
Students complete 15 hours of general education courses, which are offered online in seven-week sessions. Students will receive personalized advising from the Nontraditional and Military Student Services office. Airmen will be able to utilize their tuition assistance benefits for GEM at BGSU beginning Summer 2019.
