KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Grantham University
(http://www.grantham.edu), an online university specializing in educating
working adults, today announced that it has partnered with the Community
College of the Air Force (CCAF). This partnership formed as a result of the
Air Force's Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative Program
(AU ABC). This program allows CCAF to partner with military friendly
academic institutions, such as Grantham University, who will accept all
CCAF degree program credits in one or more of its bachelor degrees
"We want to stay front and center with all of our students, including
those in the Air Force," said Greg Garcia, EdD, Dean of Military Programs
at Grantham University. "Our goal is to continue providing the highest
quality programs that truly represent a premier online experience."
Grantham University was one of ten schools that tested the concept, and
CCAF accepted two of its degree programs, Computer Science and Electronics
Engineering Technology for this initiative. Airmen will be able to log into
the Air Force portal beginning June 1, 2007, browse through the available
degree programs, and enroll with one of the accepted academic institutions.
"As both Grantham and the military education and training communities
move forward into the 21st century, we're excited about the revolutionary
new ways we can cooperatively bring the highest quality education programs
to our students -- both locally and globally," adds Garcia.
