Air Force SNCOs no longer need Community College of the Air Force degrees
KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany — Starting this year, senior noncommissioned officers no longer need a Community College of the Air Force degree to be considered for promotion.
Under the new policy announced Wednesday, senior noncommissioned officers who complete an associate degree or higher “from a nationally or regionally accredited academic institution” are eligible for promotion and eligible for commander’s promotion recommendation, the Air Force said in a release.
Previously, only SNCOs with degrees from the Community College of the Air Force were considered for endorsement for promotion from their commander. Airmen were advised to update their degrees in the Military Personnel Data System, the release said.
The Air Force is updating the evaluation system to ensure it “focuses on equitability and streamlines the stratification process,” it said.
