AU-ABC Program

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

The Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) program is an initiative between Air University of the Air Force and 100% online Grantham University to offer baccalaureate degree opportunities to Air Force enlisted members. The AU-ABC Program aligns with the vision of Air Force leaders to provide distance learning and bachelor’s degree opportunities for Airmen.

If you are a current student or have graduated with an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), you may be eligible to complete your baccalaureate degree with Grantham by leveraging your associate degree through the AU-ABC Program. And because Grantham offers frequent class starts, you can get started anytime you’re ready to earn a degree on your terms. To talk with someone about entering the AU-ABC program, call Grantham at (888) 947-2684 today.

  • Active-duty Air Force, Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard
  • Degree requirements may be completed after you retire or separate from the Air Force (retired or veteran Airmen who have received a qualifying CCAF degree are also eligible)
  • You receive a binding degree completion contract to lock in the transfer credit and remaining degree requirements
