Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative Program (AU-ABC)
The AU-ABC program aligns with the Air Force vision and meets the Air University’s near-term goal of providing enhanced educational opportunities for our enlisted force. The AU-ABC initiative establishes partnerships between the Air Force and accredited civilian higher education institutions to offer baccalaureate degree opportunities via distance learning. AU-ABC links airmen who have completed associate degrees to “military friendly” baccalaureate programs.
Key Features of the AU-ABC Program:
- It builds on your Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) degree.
- CCAF graduates earn bachelor’s degrees after completing no more than 60 semester hours beyond their associate degree.
- It maximizes the application of your military career education and training.
- Military friendly colleges and universities award the bachelor’s degrees.
- It is based in virtual campus instruction.
- Every participant receives a binding degree completion contract that locks in transfer credit and states remaining degree requirements.
- Maximized Acceptance of Transfer Credits. The AU-ABC degree plans in the Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice will accept all 64 hours from the student’s CCAF degree plus additional courses from other schools. The major courses (31 hours) must be completed through online or in-resident enrollment at Angelo State University.
