An associate's degree from the Community College of the Air Force is no longer required for promotions — but master sergeants still have to keep education in mind for their enlisted performance reports. An associate's degree or higher is still mandatory for promotion to senior master sergeant, according to the revised Air Force Handbook 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure. For Master Sergeant EPR's, the CCAF block will now be marked 'yes' if an Airman has been conferred for an associate or higher degree prior to the static closeout date. Revisions will be made to AFI 36-2406 Officer and Enlisted Evaluation System, and AF Form 911. For more information, contact the military personnel flight at (501) 987-3288.
