AIR FORCE BASE PROGRAM
Dr. Rosemary Kovach Wallace, McMurry-Dyess Air Force Base
RESIDENT PROGRAM PURPOSE AND ADMINISTRATION
Since the fall of 1960, McMurry University has operated an on-base
program of classes at Dyess Air Force Base located approximately
seven miles from the main campus. The educational program provided
for military personnel is designed to assure an opportunity to attend
resident college classes conducted by McMurry University at Dyess Air
Force Base and on the main campus. The program is suited not only to
military members, but also to non-traditional and civilian students alike
in that courses tend to be offered during lunch time, in the evening
and/or in condensed (mini) semesters and an occasional weekend
one. Full semesters are offered as well. Offerings include the
academic courses toward completion of the Community College of the
Air Force (CCAF) associate degree and the general education courses
toward the baccalaureate. In addition, various disciplines' lower and
upper level courses are periodically given on base. With a
combination of limited campus classes, specific course work for the
Bachelor of Business Administration (certain concentrations) and the
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degrees can be completed
through the base offerings. Generally, the program's students can be
found in most disciplines and majors.
McMurry professors and instructors (full time and adjunct) comprise
the faculty, with each department Chairperson responsible for
assigning faculty and overseeing individual course offerings. The
Director works in liaison with the various departments, colleges, and
schools of the University to ensure academic standards and
procedures are maintained between campus and base. Students are
eligible to take course work at either site - main campus or on base.
The Director of McMurry-Dyess Air Force Base Program is responsible
to the Vice President for Academic Affairs and works with others in
administration. The program is administered by the Director with an
office on base and at the main campus.
Regular admission procedures apply. That is, admission requirements
include submission of a completed application form, requested
transcripts, and possibly entrance scores. See section on Admissions
and Procedures for details.
With special permission, a student may take one semester as a non-
degree seeking student without providing transcripts of high school or
college work. Applications for non-degree seeking candidates are
available from the Director of the McMurry-Dyess AFB Program in the
Education Center on base. If any student desires to enroll in more
coursework upon completion of one semester at McMurry, he or she
must meet the requirements of regular admission, including the
submission of all requested transcripts. Credit for courses taken at
McMurry after completion of one semester at McMurry cannot be
granted until the required transcripts and/or entrance exam scores are
received and processed by the Admissions and Registrar offices at
McMurry. Military service school courses are evaluated and may be
accepted for credit by McMurry University according to the
recommendations of the American Council of Education's Guide to the
Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services (ACE
Evaluation Guide), current edition. Anyone in the military services may
request an unofficial evaluation of service credits from the Director.
The Registrar will determine the applicability of the credit toward a
degree program at McMurry University. Credit will be awarded upon
successful completion of appropriate CLEP or subject examinations.
