Air Force Enlisted Commissioning Programs
Air Force Enlisted Commissioning Programs are designed to offer enlisted personnel in the Air Force the opportunity to earn a commission.
Columbia College is one of a limited number of four-year institutions able to accept participants in the Air Force Enlisted Commissioning Programs. Upon selection to ASCP, AECP, POC-ERP or SOAR, participants transfer directly to the Columbia College-affiliated Air Force ROTC program at the University of Missouri and attend the main Columbia College campus in Columbia, Mo. to complete their undergraduate degrees. Their current degree plan remains valid, and no transfer of credits/classes are required if they remain with Columbia College. In effect, while they are completing their application for the commissioning program, they can begin fulfilling the degree requirements necessary for commission.
Moreover, as Columbia College partners with the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and General Education Mobile (GEM) program, service members can complete their Associate in Applied Science degree on an accelerated, flexible schedule.
For more information on the Air Force enlisted commissioning programs, see your Air Force College Office director or visit the Air Force ROTC website. For information about Columbia College's AFROTC affiliation with the University of Missouri, visit airforce.missouri.edu.
