CCAF

Community College of the Air Force

Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is at an Operational Pause as they transition to the new and improved Student Information System (SIS). Effective 28 Sep 2022 regular CCAF operations will be paused for approximately 3-6 months.

What this means for Airmen: Your local Education Center AND CCAF will be unable to process CCAF Action Requests, provide CCAF Online services, process degrees, including issuing diplomas and awarding degrees, update student records, including enrollments and credit application, evaluate civilian/military courses. This is due to the labor-intensive processes of migrating and verifying data to the new Student Information System (SIS).

Official CCAF transcripts for courses completed prior to 28 September 2022 may be requested here.

If you would like to speak with an Education Specialist regarding your CCAF, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call the Education Center on to schedule an appointment. Airmen may also reach out to the
CCAF Student Advocate Office by calling or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you for your patience with this transition.
