Welcome to the Fort Carson Education Center

The Fort Carson Education Center is more than a brick and mortar building. Located at Building , our official address is , . (We are on the corner of Specker Avenue and Ellis Street, across from the USO, next door to the Garrison Headquarters. Our parking lot and front doors face Ellis Street.)

The Fort Carson Education Center is responsible for serving Soldiers who are Active Duty, Active Reserve and Active National Guard (on Title 10 or Title 32 orders) located in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah. While we are happy to assist where we can, Reserve and National Guard members not on Title 10 or Title 32 will be referred to their accordingly.

Above all, the Education Center is a place where Soldiers can go to receive up-to-date answers to questions about higher education and educational benefits, take official military tests, increase reading, word knowledge, and math skills, study for military and college courses, and talk directly with college representatives. Limited services are also available for Family Members, Retirees, Veterans, and Department of the Army Civilians.

The Staff is well trained and is genuinely interested in assisting those who serve our nation. Have a question? Please feel free to let us know!
