LRAFB Education Center
In 2011, the base’s education center relocated to the new Jacksonville-Little Rock AFB Education Center, a project jointly funded by the USAF and the City of Jacksonville. This state-of-the-art facility is located on LRAFB property adjacent to Highway 67/167 and is open to the public. The Education Center provides undergraduate and graduate programs offered by multiple public and private universities.
Not everyone working at a military base is a member of the armed services. Service members' families and civilian base employees are also an important part of the LRAFB community. Military spouses can take advantage of their close proximity to an ASU-Beebe campus by taking classes at our Little Rock AFB Campus. Additional financial assistance is also available under the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts for spouses who seek certification or an associate degree in an occupation that may be available regardless of where a service member is stationed.
Other civilians employed on base can improve their job prospects by earning a degree at our LRAFB Campus. For more information on what ASU-Beebe LRAFB can offer, go to the Degrees tab below.
ASU-Beebe recognizes the unique nature of military service and is committed to easing the transfer of relevant course credits, providing flexible academic residency requirements, and crediting learning from appropriate military training and experience.
Many courses offered at the Little Rock Air Force Base center satisfy Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), USAF Airman Education and Commissioning Program (AECP), and USAF Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) requirements. Classes are open to active duty military personnel, Department of Defense civilian employees, military Reserve members, National Guard personnel, military dependents, and military retirees. Courses are also available to the general public on a space available basis, security posture permitting. ASU-Beebe accepts transfer credit from the Community College of the Air Force, a regionally accredited and federally chartered degree-granting institution.
The ASU-Beebe Campus location at Little Rock Air Force Base offers selected associate degrees and classes year round in accelerated 8-week terms and traditional semesters, in classroom settings and in internet-assisted format. Certificate programs in automobile and household upholstery are also available in 8-week terms in an on-base facility accessible to the public with a special pass issued by the base.
