A year assignment to Kunsan will go by rapidly. Put your time to good use and explore the educational opportunities available to you. Come by the education center located in building 1051 for assistance with your educational needs, both voluntary education and professional military education. Under a PACOM contract, both Central Texas College (CTC) and the University of Maryland, University College (UMUC)-Asian Division have offices on Kunsan and located within the education center.
CTC offers general online courses while UMUC offers both traditional classroom and online classes. Onsite course offerings are geared to those members needing to satisfy outstanding Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) requirements.
The Kunsan school’s calendar features five 8-week terms. For each term there are course offerings that either satisfy a CCAF requirement or serve as a prerequisite for the English or math requirement. Depending on faculty availability, there are occasional course offerings that can be used as CCAF program electives. If you are beyond CCAF, associate, bachelors or masters, courses from any regional or nationally accredited college or university are available online for continued study and easy transition when PCSing to your next duty station.
That is the beauty of online education; it goes where you go as long as you have internet connectivity.
