AU-ABC Program

Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) is a partnership that offers baccalaureate degree opportunities to Air and Space Force enlisted personnel. AU-ABC provides Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) students the ability to seamlessly transfer course credits to one of UA Grantham’s online bachelor’s degree programs.

At UA Grantham, we’ve been educating adult learners just like you since 1951. Understanding the challenges of busy lifestyles, we make it easier to juggle work, family and school. We do this by offering eight-week courses with a start date in every month of the year.


  • Currently serving members in the regular Air and Space Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard
  • You will receive a binding degree completion contract to lock in the transfer credit and remaining degree requirements
