These certificates can be completed independently, or in addition to an associate degree. Depending on your military occupation, you may have already earned some of the credits needed based on your military experience.
FTCC has proudly provided affordable and convenient educational pathways for our nation’s military for over four decades. We are committed to supporting our military students in their pursuit of education.
Administrative fees are waived for all military students using Tuition Assistance to pay for their education.
In addition to the military occupation degree maps (Air Force | Army), you can use the Credit Search Tool to see a customized list of courses and credits already earned at FTCC through your military training and experience. Simply select your branch, occupations held, pay grade, and any additional military schools attended.
If you have had various occupations throughout your service, you can select as many occupations as needed. You can also choose to search for your occupation, or select from the list in the drop-down menu.
Based on your selections, the search tool will generate a printable list of all the courses for which you could receive college credit if you attend FTCC. Remember that these credits are in addition to any college credit you have earned at other colleges and universities.
