The classes will be available via the General Education Mobile program.
GPC will offer online courses meeting the general education degree completion requirements in oral and written communication, mathematics, social science and humanities.
Mark Eister, GPC’s director of military outreach, said the agreement announced Jan. 2 enables Community College of the Air Force students to complete the 15-hour general education course requirement for the Associate of Applied Science degree.
“Airmen simply sign up for their general education requirements in a single block of courses from GPC, providing greater educational continuity and faster completion of an associate degree,” he said.
GPC has a Military Outreach Center staffed by military veterans. The center offers an extensive support network for distance learners, including academic advising, tutoring, and technical support and assistance, Eister said.
“Our online instructors have successfully completed comprehensive training designed to teach them how to deliver quality instruction via the Internet while also providing one-on-one support and guidance.”
GPC serves one of the largest military population of any institution in the University System of Georgia. The college, which was named to the 2012 and 2013 G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Schools list, has more than 700 current military members, veterans, families and dependents.
Eister said GPC’s goal with the Military Outreach Center is to be military-friendly, to offer the highest quality education at an affordable price to service members, veterans and their dependents.
“We want service members to know that they have a home at GPC,” Eister said. “We will do our best to make the transition to college as smooth as possible.”
