The Air Force is partnering with Jones International University under the service-sponsored Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative Program to offer airmen with an associate degree the opportunity to earn a bachelors degree. The university announced June 2 that airmen who hold an associate degree in applied science from the Community College of the Air Force will be able to earn a bachelor of business administration or a bachelor of arts in business communication from JIU, with no more than 60 follow-on credit hours required to complete the four-year degree. “We’re proud to bring top-quality education to airmen through this outstanding Air Force program,” said JIU Chancellor, Glenn Jones.
