AU - ABC Program at TROY

The Air University Associate to Bachelor Cooperative (AU ABC) was designed to provide Bachelor degree opportunities for enlisted Airmen. The cooperative focuses on advanced education as a means of enhancing force development while maximizing tuition assistance benefits and minimizing costs.

In order to realize these objectives, the Air Force has partnered with military friendly civilian institutions willing to maximize credit earned through the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree awarded by the Communty College of the Air Force (CCAF). Additionally, institutions participating in the partnership provide distance learning and bachelor degree opportunities that are accessed through the Air Force portal.

As an institution with a long history of serving the US Air Force, Troy University is proud to be a partner in this initiative.
