IRAAD strives to develop and maintain partnerships with select higher education institutions that provide educational services to our graduates assigned to military higher headquarters locations worldwide. We encourage our graduates to maximize the higher educational experiences gained at JFSC by pursuing master’s or terminal degrees in areas that are mutually advantageous for them and the Department of Defense. As part of our university Partnership Program, JFSC graduates from the JCWS and AJPME programs who desire to enter a graduate program can capitalize on their JFSC educational experience. JFSC has established agreements with various institutions that provide educational services to our graduates assigned to locations worldwide. These colleges and universities will give credit for courses taken and transfer them into specified graduate-level programs (see list below). The agreement is designed to streamline the process for our graduates to enter specific programs of study, such as International Relations, Business, Strategic Planning, History, Regional Study, or Urban Planning. At this time, 14 agreements apply to JCWS graduates and two apply to AJPME graduates; the agreements do not include graduates from JC2IOS or JAWS.
