Welcome to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington, “Home of America’s Corps!” Named in honor of explorer Meriwether Lewis, Joint Base Lewis-McChord is made up of active, reserve and National Guard units dispersed throughout the United States Pacific Command Joint Task Force Headquarters. Central Texas College proudly stands ready to provide quality education to America’s service members, family members and local residents.
Central Texas College has been offering college classes on Joint Base Lewis-McChord since March 2001. Our site began when the Initial Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) requested we create and provide two courses for their soldiers who were preparing to deploy.
Our Joint Base Lewis-McChord site representatives serve as a point-of-contact for students and provide such services as degree mapping; assistance in the registration process for active-duty service members, Reserve, National Guard, veterans and civilians; guidance for distance-learning students; and VA certification by a VA-certified official for class registrations. All students have access to the Technical Academic Resource Center (TARC) and distance-learning students have access to the JBLM Testing and Basic Skills Center through our partnership with the Stone Education Center and Army Education Services.
See our updated list of available online degrees and certificates through the Distance Education link as well as our current schedule for on-site classes.
Central Texas College provides accessible and quality educational opportunities that support a diverse student population and promotes student success, completion and employability.
