University of Charleston

The University of Charleston (UC) has partnered with the Air University to assist Airmen in completing the requirements for a baccalaureate degree.

AU-ABC links airmen who have completed associate degrees to “military friendly” baccalaureate programs via distance learning. The AU-ABC program aligns with the Air Force vision and meets the Air University’s near-term goal of providing enhanced educational opportunities for our enlisted force.


Key Features of the AU-ABC Program

  • It builds on your Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) degree.
  • CCAF graduates earn bachelor’s degrees after completing no more than 60 semester hours beyond their associate degree.
  • It maximizes the application of your military career education and training.
  • Military friendly colleges and universities award the bachelor’s degrees.
  • It is based on virtual campus instruction.
  • Every participant receives a binding degree completion contract that locks in transfer credit and states remaining degree requirements.
  • Maximized Acceptance of Transfer Credits. The AU-ABC degree plan in Organizational Leadership will accept all 64 hours from the student’s CCAF degree plus additional courses from other schools. The major courses (30 hours) must be completed through online enrollment at University of Charleston West Virginia.

UCWV offers the following AU-ABC degree plans
