Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (ABC)

Getting your degree is as easy as ABC

If you are a U.S. Air Force member completing an associate of applied science (AAS) degree at the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), you can now link to a UMUC bachelor's degree with easy completion. Air University's new ABC program, Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative, and UMUC make it possible.

Benefits to CCAF students:

  • Building on your CCAF degree, you will be completing a bachelor's degree from UMUC—a regionally accredited, nationally respected university.
  • UMUC Europe will provide a binding degree completion contract that ensures transfer of your CCAF credits to your bachelor's program, maximizing credits awarded to you for prior military training or education programs.
  • Complete your bachelor's degree from anywhere in the world by participating in UMUC's award-winning distance education program in conjunction with Air University's self-service virtual campus.

UMUC and CCAF have enjoyed a long history of working together, so partnering with the ABC program just strengthens this relationship and benefits students like you.

Under Category II degrees, your general education requirements should be completed at an articulated institution or credit source (ex. tests). In some cases, it may only take you 60 credits to complete your degree program at UMUC. However, it is important to note that the number of credits for Category II programs will be determined during your transcript evaluation.
