General Education Mobile (GEM) - Earn Two Degrees

Enroll with CTC to Complete the General Education Requirements for a CCAF AAS Degree and Work on a CTC General Studies Degree at the Same Time!

CTC also has Articulation Agreements with many Bachelor Degree Granting Colleges and Universities.

CTC’s Associate of Arts in General Studies requires 60 semester hours, which includes 25 semester hours in general education courses and 35 semester hours in free electives. 15 semester hours in CTC residency is required and remaining hours may be earned through a combination of CCAF and CLEP, DANTES, and Excelsior examinations.

How it works:

  • Apply the 15 semester hours in general education courses required for the CCAF degree toward the 25 semester hours in general education required for CTC’s General Studies degree.
  • Apply 4 semester hours in physical education required for the CCAF degree to CTC’s 1 semester hour physical education requirement and the remaining 3 semester hours may be applied toward the CTC free electives.
  • Apply a combination of technical education (AFSC) courses; leadership, management, and military studies courses; and program electives required for the CCAF degree to the remaining 32 semester hours in free electives required for CTC’s degree.
  • Take a CTC Computer Skills/Technology course, transfer in an appropriate CCAF course, or take a CLEP/DANTES computer science exam.
