Patrick AFB Education Center

Eastern Florida State College is proud to partner with the U.S. Air Force and 45th Space Wing to offer conveniently-located post-secondary educational programs at Patrick Air Force Base. We know a strategic investment in higher education enhances a service member's ability to support mission success — and to return to civilian life with the skills and credentials vital for post-military employment.

EFSC offers on-base classes in the Patrick Education & Training Center, Bldg. 998. Plus Patrick Center students can register for hundreds of online classes and access additional courses on the College's four campuses in the Brevard County cities of Cocoa, Titusville, Melbourne and Palm Bay.

On base classes are open to active service members, veterans, reservists, dependents, Department of Defense employees and civilians (general public). Civilian students must complete a Base Access form and have a background check completed each semester and receive clearance prior to being allowed to take classes on base. To obtain the Base Access form, contact the EFSC PAFB Administration Office at 321-433-5110.
