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.

"I was able to work full-time and go to school full-time at night. I did my program in 9 months and I was hired for an externship. I would definitely say going to Central Coast College was the best decision I ever made."
