Indiana Wesleyan University has been approved to offer online degree options to active duty Air Force personnel. The school is offering the education through the General Education Mobile program and the Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative.
Both programs offer active duty Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves personnel the opportunity to take online classes while serving anywhere in the world. IWU is one of 64 approved schools, and the only one in Indiana, to offer the GEM program. “We are proud to be one of the few colleges accepted to participate in these Air Force programs,” said K.C. Haight, director of military and veteran recruitment at IWU-National & Global. “Both the GEM and the AU-ABC programs allow enlisted members to maximize their military experience while enrolling in an accelerated program that allows them to achieve their educational goals.”
Airmen are required to finish 15 hours of general education classes to earn an Associate of Applied Science, and enlisted airmen assigned to an Air Force job specialty, are accepted into the Community College of the Air Force. The GEM program provides enlisted personnel the opportunity to finish general education requirements in a lone block and from the same institution. The Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative offers active duty enlisted personnel who have earned an AAS through the CCAF to complete an online bachelor’s degree. IWU allows those graduates to earn a bachelor’s degree with a guarantee that no more than 60 semester hours of additional credit will be required for degree completion.
