AU-ABC Partnership

The B.I.S.S.A. degree has been approved by Air University to be included in the AU-ABC program. Degrees in the AU-ABC program allow students to transfer all 64 credit hours of their Associate of Applied Science Degree from CCAF into the course requirements. Since the B.I.S.S.A. requires 124 SCH and all 64 hours from the CCAF degree will be used, the student is only required to complete an additional 60 SCH to complete the B.I.S.S.A. degree.

The Office of Admissions, in conjunction with the Department of Security Studies and Criminal Justice, will make an exception to standard policy with regard to Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) credits for a CCAF degree-holder. All credits from CCAF associate’s degrees will be accepted and applied toward your degree plan. However should you choose to change your degree plan to a degree other than those specified below, the transfer credits originally accepted and applied may be revoked.
