Rio Salado College fully supports the Community College of the Air Force
(CCAF), the only federally chartered degree-granting two-year institution serving enlisted personnel. It is fully accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and awards the Associate in Applied Science Degree to those successfully completing a degree program.
Rio Salado College is the provider for all CCAF 100 and 200-level course requirements and is the official CCAF college on Luke Air Force Base (LAFB). Counselors in the LAFB Education Office help students establish a plan to obtain a CCAF degree and then Rio Salado helps to carry it out.
