Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2014
Northern Arizona University (NAU) recently became an Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) partner, allowing members of the United States Air Force who are earning an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) to start earning their bachelor’s degree now at NAU.
In order to establish an AU-ABC partnership, NAU had to meet strict requirements including specific accreditation standards, online delivery instruction offerings and requiring no more than 60 hours to earn a bachelor’s degree upon earning an AAS degree.
“We are very honored to establish this partnership,” says LTC (R) Jim Johnson, Manager of Military Initiatives at NAU. “We strive to support our active duty service members in every way we can.”
NAU has a strong reputation as being a military-friendly university. In addition to offering priority enrollment and military benefits counseling, NAU offers its active duty military and veteran students:
NAU was ranked by U.S. News & World Report among the nation’s best universities for online bachelor’s degree programs for veterans. Military Times named Northern Arizona University among its Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 rankings. NAU is also recognized by the Arizona State Legislature as an Arizona Veterans Supportive Campus.
