    Schools accepting CCAF AAS degrees

    Hello,

    Does anyone know of schools that transfer Community College of the Air Force Associates degrees as a whole, meaning you're considered to have completed all Gen Ed requirements and can begin classes in a Major? So far I have found Jones International and Bellevue . Thanks.

    I would check with Excelsior. They are well aware of your associates degree.
    Quote from their web site:
    "Air Force prior service personnel may apply their CCAF credits toward any of the AAS degree programs linked to the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, and Marine career fields. Active duty Air Force personnel are encouraged to continue working on their CCAF associate degree program requirements."

    Embry-Riddle took 69 credits in transfer - all my CCAF credits plus some extra.

    Since you are in the Air Force, check out http://www.dantescatalogs.com/DEDC/DEDCNav.asp. It has a list of Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (military friendly schools) with DL options.

    Also, fully check out the options on your base.

    Excelsior

    I transferred two AAS degrees to Regents/Excelsior from CCAF. They did not take the 4 SH for PE (basic training), but took the rest. Most of the technical credit and PME will count as "applied professional" credit. You still need to make up the required preresiquites for the BA/BS, and if all your credit comes from the AAS, without supplemental cleps or classes, then you may be a bit short. You may get maximum use of the applied professional credit if you go with an excelsior technology or business program instead of liberal arts.

    Good Luck. Regardless, the CCAF is a good start, all the services should follow the USAF's lead. I personally think excelsior and the other big three offer better alternatives that what you find at many base education offices.

    CCAF used to maintain a list of schools with which it had articulation agreements. Check with them.

    CCAF is accredited by SACS. Credits should be transferable, but their subject to the same restrictions found anywhere.

    The Degree Completion Concentration is designed for students who typically have completed an Associate of Science degree with minimal General Education or Liberal Arts lower division courses. Candidates must present a minimum of 60 transferable credits from an accredited institution. These credits will be accepted as meeting all lower division requirements provided the candidate meets all of the upper division requirements below. Graduates of the Community College of the Air Force meet the General Education requirements. If a candidate does not include Principles of Accounting I and II in the lower division transferred credits, the candidate must take ACC 403 Principles of Accounting as one of the two free upper division electives.

    Touro says they will accept your CCAF Degree as the General Education Requirements. I'm attending TUI and very happy with them so far.

    Your CCAF credential should be very well accepted at any RA college or university. Where you will face a challenge is this:

    The core education requirement at each university is established by that university and may differ from school-to-school and even major-to-major.

    What meets the core education requirement at XYZ State College may not meet the core at University of XYZ even in the same state. Further, it's often the case that coursework in an AAS isn't of the "core education " nature and won't apply to that core at all (an example would be courses of a vocational nature at the Assoc. degree level).

    Most BA/BS programs establish a core educational requirement that is very similar to the one in place at Excelsior College (60 hour basic core balanced between the liberal arts and sciences.) An AAS that contained 30 hours of Lib Arts core and 30 hours of professional/vocational content would not be equal to the core educational requirement of a BA but, the 30 hours of applied coursework might be acceptable in the foundation of the major.

    Each of the Big Three should accept your CCAF degree with the most generous distribution of credit. Many public universities will also be fairly generous. Of concern would be those public universities (such as Coastal Carolina Univ. in SC) which will accept only a limitted amount (30 hours) of credit from "military sources".

    Too, many schools will want to evaluate for themselves the credit that CCAF gave you for MOSC, CLEP, DANTES, and service schools. In some cases, you can get more or less credit from your potential BA/BS provider than CCAF offered.

    TKaminske,

    Check out Bellevue University (Bellevue , NE). They have an articulation agreement with CCAF where by they will accept your entire AAS, and it also satisfies the general ed req.'s for your Bachelor's degree.

    Webster Universtiy accepts CCAF degrees. My brother is completing his degree in Adult Education from there. If you have the CCAF degree, and live near an Air Force base, You could finish your degree by going every other Sat and Sun. for a year. There is also an internship.


    Also, I did not have have and associates, but UoP accepted all of my military schooling to the tune of 43 credits.

    another area to check for credits will be your CDC courses and any ACE review of these courses:

    http://www.acenet.edu/clll/military/credit-adm.cfm

    many CDC courses carry some academic value that may help.

    Good Luck....

    You may want to google "military friendly schools" and a list of schools will show up that is military friendly. The schools on this list are more susceptible of giving you credit.

    Some schools are more specific and only accept classes which apply to whatever program that you are applying to, but many schools accept associates degrees as your first two years of college no matter what.

    Bellevue University accepted my CCAF AAS completely, and I finished the rest of my BS via distance ed and CLEPS in under a year and a half (while working full time and living in another country). It's not the right school for everyone, but it was affordable, flexible, and accepting of my AAS degree... so I definitely recommend them.

    Given that the op created this thread in 2004, I hope that he finished his degree between that post and now.

    The AAS is considered by many schools to be a vocational, not academic, degree. Often, degrees from CCAF are accepted not as a whole, but credit-by-credit. As I posted almost a decade ago, however, CCAF maintains relationships with many schools that will admit students based upon a CCAF AAS and give them full credit towards a bachelor's degree. YMMV.
