Air Force General Education Mobile (GEM) Program
Complete Your General Education Requirements Through the Air Force GEM Program
Thomas Edison State College is a participating institution in the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) General Education Mobile (GEM) program.
The College’s participation in the program enables airmen to complete up to 15 credits of their general education requirements in a single block of five online courses at Thomas Edison State College that may be applied directly to a student’s Associate in Applied Science degree at CCAF or a degree at Thomas Edison State College. By earning the general education requirements in a single block of courses from one institution, students will benefit from greater continuity and be able to complete their degree more quickly. With online courses, students can continue their education without interruption, regardless of whether they go on temporary duty or deploy.

How It Works
After students enroll for a five-course sequence, they may register for the individual courses when they are ready. Students will be reminded by e-mail when it's time to register for a course, but you can still work at their own pace during the semester.
The Air Force Portal is the central online location for the program. From there, students can browse course offerings, register for a five-course sequence and order transcripts.
