General Education Mobile (GEM)

GEM logo

The General Education Mobile (GEM) program is designed to help United States Air Force and Space Force service members fulfill their general education (GE) requirements in a mobile, non-traditional classroom format. Completing the GEM program is a key step toward earning your Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF). GEM can be completed with five online courses at the University of Arizona Global Campus, and if you already have some college experience, the number of courses required may be reduced.

UAGC offers convenient online courses that can satisfy these GE requirements for your AAS degree at Community College of the Air Force:

Written Communication




Social Science


Oral Communication




** These courses have live learning (synchronous) sessions where attendance is highly encouraged. These sessions take place in Zoom at designated dates and time. If you cannot attend a live learning session contact your faculty member to discuss alternative accommodations including watching a recorded session.
