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

Apply/Enroll

CSU is one of the few universities that have enrolled in the Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC). This initiative allows airmen to transfer all 60 semester hours of the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) degree into a bachelor’s degree program. The accelerated program requires no more than 60 semester hours to complete select bachelor’s degree programs with CSU and will be offered in a completely online format.

To participate in the AU-ABC program, registrants must be active-duty Air Force, Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard. However, degree requirements can be completed after a member retires or separates from the service. For more information, including available degree programs, please visit the Air Force Virtual Education Center on the Air Force Portal.

For assistance applying to CSU through the Air Force Portal, please contact militarysupportgroup@columbiasouthern.edu or call (800) 977-8449 ex 6521.
