Air University Partnership

Air University is the Air Force's Intellectual and Leadership Center; it is an accredited military education system that "produces the future by developing leaders and warfighters today ... for tomorrow." In partnership with Grand Canyon University (GCU), Air University offers an Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) - an efficient path for Airmen and Airwomen to attain their bachelor's degree.

GCU reviews all credits earned through your Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) and applies the greatest possible number of credits to one of our approved AU-ABC bachelor's degrees. If your associate degree is in another discipline or for further evaluation, contact Stephen Smith at 855-GCU-LOPE or visit

GCU offers a special rate for Active Duty military and their spouses.
