Air University - Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative Program (AU-ABC) Program

AU-ABC LogoThe Air University - Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) Program is an initiative between Air University and civilian higher education institutions (including Excelsior College) to offer bachelor's degree programs via distance learning that are relevant to an individual's Air Force career. The AU-ABC Program is designed to transfer Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) credits so students can earn a bachelor's degree with no more than 60 additional semester credits.
