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.

Angelo State University offers the following AU-ABC degree plans:

Notice regarding changing majors to non-AU-ABC programs:

The Office of Admissions, in conjunction with the Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice, will make an exception to standard Angelo State University policy with regard to Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) credits. As a student majoring in any of the security studies or border security degrees, all credits from CCAF associate degrees will be accepted and applied toward your degree plan of choice. However, should you choose to change your degree plan to a degree other than security studies or border security, the transfer credits originally accepted and applied may be revoked. If a CCAF degree-holder has additional college credits beyond the basic CCAF A.A.S. degree, ASU may accept those as well, over and above the stated ASU policy maximum number of transfer credits hours (66) that may apply toward a degree plan. Again, exception to standard ASU policy will be retracted if you later choose a non-security studies/border security degree plan.
