Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Learning Center

Pima Community College offers a range of classes on the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base leading to degree and transfer programs.

The center serves both active-duty military personnel and the public. Students must provide proof of identity and proof of class or test registration to enter the Dept. of Defense (DoD) facility.   Information about documenting citizenship, obtaining a base pass and more is given below.

Classes on Davis-Monthan Air Force Base are offered primarily in 8-week sessions.  Daytime and evening classes are taught in traditional or web/classroom hybrid formats to provide flexibility and convenience. 

Students receive the same services that are available on Pima’s campuses, including assessment exams, financial aid services, and admissions and registration advising. CLEP and DSST testing is offered at this site for active duty and DoD contractors at no charge. Non-military affiliated PCC students may also take the CLEP exam at the DMAFB test center for a fee.

The College partners with the Community College of the Air Force through the General Education Mobile (GEM) program to offer general education courses that meet CCAF degree requirements.

 

All Pima students attending classes at Davis-Monthan AFB must show

  • Picture Identification: (driver’s license, State ID, or passport)

Students driving vehicles onto the Base must show driver's license, proof of auto insurance, and vehicle registration.

Passes for entry to the Base can be obtained at the Visitor's Center at the Craycroft/Golf Links Gate daily between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. 

Students may obtain Base passes beginning one week before the start of class.

To meet Homeland Security regulations, the government will conduct any background checks it deems appropriate to maintain law and order and ensure the security of the personnel and property on the installation.   

All Pima College students enrolled in any course offered at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base must undergo a criminal background check to gain permission to enter the Base.
