AU-ABC Program partnershipAs a member of the United States Air Force and by completing your Associate of Applied Science degree through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), you can continue your education and earn your bachelor's degree easily and affordably through NAU's partnership with the Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) Program. The AU-ABC program is designed to transfer the credits hours earned from your CCAF degree and apply those credits toward completing a Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Imagine, you could be only 60 credits or less away from completing an undergraduate degree. NAU is a regionally accredited, nationally recognized, military-friendly university that offers DoD Tuition Assistance rates for eligible and approved service members. Plus, these AU-ABC partnered degrees are fully online so you can earn your degree no matter where you are assigned.
