From January 2012 to present, because the AABC was discontinued and replaced with the Army Acquisitions Foundations Course (AAFC) and the Army Basic Contracting Course (ABCC), students must complete both courses to receive transfer credits.  This cooperative degree offers AABC graduates and AAFC/ABCC graduates the opportunity to transfer pre-approved credits to the following degree programs:

Transfer credit can only be applied to the above degrees and is limited to 6-15 semester hours depending on the program chosen. Transfer credit for other MS or MA degree programs will be subject to evaluation based on the credit recommendations established by the American Council on Education (ACE).
