Community College of the Air Force Graduates Can Now Transfer Units Toward a Webster University Baccalaureate Degree

Webster University will accept Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) Associate of Applied Science degrees from any United States Air Force member to complete their Baccalaureate degree

ST. LOUIS, MAY 14, 2013 - Webster University will accept Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) Associate of Applied Science degrees from any United States Air Force member to complete their Baccalaureate degree, Brig. Gen. Mike Callan, USAF (Ret), associate vice president for Military and Government Programs announced today.

Effective with the Fall 1, 2013 term, transfer credits from CCAF Associate of Applied Science degrees will apply towards degree completion at Webster University, including a significant amount of the course work required for the University's new Global Citizenship Program (GCP). The Global Citizenship Program is a set of undergraduate degree requirements and a general education program developed by Webster University faculty to help prepare students to confront global problems and 21st century challenges.

"For many of our service men and women, earning a four-year degree is a major life goal, and this will make it easier for them to achieve that," Callan said. "Webster recognizes that a significant amount of the work achieved by these students in the Community College of the Air Force have significant applications to other fields of study beyond the Air Force."

Michelle Loyet, Webster University's assistant director, Academic Advising notes the CCAF transfer credit plan involves students receiving full transfer of the 64 credit hours required to earn the Associate of Applied Science at the Community College of the Air Force. Students will receive an additional 4 credit hours towards their degree completion in the form of HLSC 1310, Wellness and Healthy Lifestyle.

Students will receive significant GCP equivalencies, requiring completion of only an additional 12 credit hours to complete the GCP requirements.
The remaining 48 credit hours will allow students to complete a number of majors, including online degree completion programs such as:

• Business Intelligence Technologies
• Management
• Religion and Global Society
• Media Communications

Brig Gen Mike Callan adds this transfer program will allow Webster University to submit its upcoming on-line undergraduate completion degrees for approval in the Air University-Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) Program. AU-ABC was established in 2007 to allow airmen to transfer their CCAF AAS degree into an online undergraduate degree by creating a consortium of accredited universities prepared to assist airmen in moving forward in their educational goals.
