An eligible MyCAA candidate is the spouse of an active duty Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine service member, or activated Reserve member in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, O1-O2.
If you are the spouse of National Guard and/or AGR member, the sponsor must be on federal Title 10 active duty orders as reported in DEERS.
Spouses of Guard/Reserve members in an Alert, Transition Assistance, or Post Deployment status are not eligible.
Funding is limited to only Associate’s degrees, certifications and licensure programs.
Visit the MyCAA Spouse Portal online at https://aiportal.acc.af.mil/mycaa. The first step is to read the MyCAA Fact Sheet, and then a real-time DEERS eligibility check will determine if you are eligible to establish an account. If eligible, you will be required to read and sign the MyCAA Spouse Terms and Conditions Agreement. For guidance with MyCAA Funding, eligible Military Spouse’s should contact a MyCAA Career and Education Consultant for assistance. Consultants are available Monday – Friday, 7am-10pm and Saturday 10am – 6pm EST. Consultants can be reached by calling 1-800-342-9647.
What days/hours do students attend school? Day students take classes Monday thru Friday and evening students take classes Monday thru Thursday. Classes for day students meet in blocks scheduled between 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Evening classes start at 5:50 p.m. or 6:00 p.m. and usually end at 9:45 p.m.
"On a daily basis there are classes that you attend, and the classes are small, which is great because the students do the one-on-one, which is very important. As you look at schools now-a-days they are over crowded and that is a downside. Communication with your teacher is really important here (at CCC)."
