FTCC and the U.S. Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School have partnered to provide an Associate's Degree Program that enables Soldiers to graduate from the USAJFKSWCS qualification courses for Civil Affairs, Military Information Support Operations or Special Forces and earn an associates degree in general studies from FTCC.
Credit awarded from the qualification course, coupled with the completion of 16 hours of resident instruction at FTCC fulfills the requirements for an associate's degree that is regionally accredited, nationally recognized and transferable to some four-year bachelor's degree programs.

Students will earn the required hours of residency from FTCC by attending college courses during their qualification courses.
|ENG 111||Writing and Inquiry||3 Semester Hours|
|ENG 112||Writing/Research in the Disc||3 Semester Hours|
|CIS 110||Introduction to Computers||3 Semester Hours|
|COM 231||Public Speaking||3 Semester Hours|

English 111 is a prerequisite for English 112. Classes are delivered in a variety of formats: traditional on-site, online (online classes are not self-paced) and a hybrid format that includes on-site and online. The format for each course was selected to best support the compressed format of the class schedule. Soldiers may also attend traditional on-site classes at FTCC.
Soldiers attending the program have no out-of-pocket expenses. They pay for the hours of resident credit using the Army's Tuition Assistance Program. FTCC has agreed to waive all other fees. This program is not a requirement for soldiers attending the qualification courses; participation is entirely voluntary.
To apply, soldiers should contact a USAJFKSWCS educational counselor:
