Air Force General Education Mobile (GEM) Program

Complete your degree with Boise State

The GEM Program

Boise State University is proud to partner with the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) to offer online general education courses for Airmen and Guardians who are working to complete their CCAF Associate of Applied Science degree requirements.

Through GEM, you can earn 15 of the general education credits you need to complete your CCAF associate’s degree, and if you decide to keep pursuing your education beyond your associate’s, those credits will also count toward a bachelor’s degree at Boise State.  Our courses are offered in both 7 and 15-week formats for maximum flexibility.

Why complete your general education credits at Boise State?

Our team has experience working with military students and understands the unique factors that shape your educational experience. We support online students from the moment that they express interest in Boise State all the way through graduation.
