Thomas Coakley, commander of the 17th Training Group at Goodfellow AFB, sign the transfer MOU.ASU and GAFB officials signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) today (April 15) that will allow successful graduates of the 14N course to transfer 12 credit hours into their choice of two master’s degree programs offered by ASU’s Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice – the academic arm of ASU’s Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Security Studies.

Graduates of the 14N course can transfer their credits to either the Master of Security Studies in intelligence and analysis degree program – or the Master of Science in global security studies degree program. They must have completed all 14N coursework prior to enrolling at ASU, and they must complete one semester at ASU with a minimum 3.0 GPA before the 14N transfer credits will appear on their ASU transcript.

Those transferring credits to the M.S.S. in intelligence and analysis program will receive credit for the following ASU courses:

  • ISSA 6300: Intelligence and National Security
  • ISSA 6303: Advanced Intelligence Analysis: Operating in Complex Environments
  • ISSA 6312: Cyber Arms Race and the Intelligence Policy Nexus
  • ISSA 6313: Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism

Those transferring credits to the M.S. in global security studies program will receive credit for:

  • SEC 6313: Intelligence and National Security
  • SEC 6317: Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation, and National Security
  • ISSA 6302: The Transformational Imperative: Reorganizing a Multi-Polar World
  • ISSA 6303: Advanced Intelligence Analysis: Operating in Complex Environments

The TA Scholarship will allow ASU to offer courses to those students at zero cost for tuition and fees.

The MOU codifies ASU’s existing credit transfer relationship with GAFB’s 14N course graduates, which has existed since 2013. It is also just the latest articulation agreement between ASU and GAFB. In 2017, ASU signed an agreement with the 17th Medical Group to allow students in ASU’s Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (D.P.T.) programs to complete clinical practicums at the Goodfellow Clinic.

In 2018, ASU also signed an agreement with the National Security Agency (NSA) to allow its employees to transfer credits earned through the NSA National Cryptologic School into various programs in ASU’s Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice.
