United Federation Starfleet is pleased to offer Continuing Education to all members who have successfully graduated UFS Academy. Whether your focus is learning about Starfleet’s history, obtaining diplomatic and cultural information, or discovering more about your chosen branch, we have designed programs we hope will provide you with an easy-to-understand structure of requirements and electives.

Here’s what’s currently available to you:

Academy Awards

If you’d rather not enter a structured program, you may continue to take classes that interest you when you have time! You may wish to note that there are specific Academy Awards based on the number of classes you have passed. Have a look at section 3.3 of the UFSA Manual for more information:

Academy Degree Program

You may choose to enter the Academy Degree Program (ADP). There are no prerequisites for entering ADP other than being a member in good standing who has graduated from basic Academy (Fleet, Marine, Enlisted).

ADP gives you so many choices! You may just take the basic Associate’s degree. Or you might want to go on and earn a Bachelor, Masters, or even a Doctorate. Whatever you choose to do, or how far you plan to go… may you enjoy your participation! The ADP program aims to challenge you just a little, and that’s so when you have completed the requirements, you can feel a real sense of accomplishment when you are awarded your Degree! You’ll find more information at this LCARS:

Assisting at UFS Academy

Command & General Staff Development Graduate Program

Those interested in senior administrative positions or ship’s command may wish to apply to the Command & General Staff Development Graduate Program (called CGSD for short) once they have the requirements of rank (minimum LT) and active time in service (min 6 months). The CGSD is under the direct oversight of the UF Starfleet Commander in Chief and/or his Deputy. While any member in good standing may participate in programs developed by Academy Continuing Education, entry into the Command Graduate Program is by approval only. All applications are scrutinized by the CGSD Board. For more information on the application process and requirements:
