About GEM

Auburn University at Montgomery (AUM) has partnered with General Education Mobile (GEM) to provide online courses to Airmen in order to complete their CCAF Associate Degree. Our partnership makes earning your associate degree easy and affordable.

Airmen can complete up to 15 credits of their general education requirements by taking online classes from Auburn University at Montgomery.  These credits can be applied to your CCAF Associate of Applied Science program and can also apply toward a higher education degree at AUM if you choose to further your education.

We are proud to offer out-of-state online students a reduced tuition rate for undergraduate online classes.  For more information about the costs of online courses at AUM, please visit our tuition and fees page.
