New Boise State partnership creates a seamless transition for Airmen to earn Bachelor’s Degree
Boise State University and the Community College of the Air Force’s expanded partnership makes earning a bachelor’s degree easier than ever. The Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative has recently added Cyber Operations and Resilience to the list of programs to easily transfer into along with the Applied Science, Business Management and Public Health programs!
Funding your Future
Boise State’s Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Cooperative allows Community College of the Air Force graduates to earn a degree from Boise State in around 60 credits (two years full-time). Along with offering efficient and effective learning opportunities, the Boise State Cyber Operations and Resilience program is also affordable for military personnel. Federal Tuition Assistance funding awards $250 per required credit to eligible Active Duty, Guard and Reserve military members. Boise State’s TA promise will cover the remaining tuition cost after Military Tuition Assistance has been allocated.
Laura Porter, Boise State Military Programs Outreach Coordinator, described the benefit of the collaboration, stating, “We’re excited to be able to offer this cutting-edge AU-ABC program to Airmen worldwide. Boise State is one of only four public universities that offer a cyber-related degree in this partnership with the Air Force, and to be able to offer our TA Promise Program to these students as well is an excellent added benefit.”
Why Cyber Operations and Resilience?
Our world is more digital than ever. We depend on cybersystems to interact with friends and family online, learn with our peers in virtual classrooms and move finances with the touch of a finger. However, these systems are vulnerable to hacks, bugs and disrepair. The world needs cyber warriors to protect, repair and restore the systems that allow us to bank, learn and unwind virtually. Boise State Online’s Cyber Operations and Resilience (uCORe) program will teach students to do all that and more. Students of the undergraduate Cyber Operations and Resilience program will learn to mitigate cybersecurity threats, repair cybersecurity systems and keep cybersystems operational.
Military students choose Boise State Online’s Cyber Operations and Resilience program for its highly ranked, accessible approach to learning. Online, asynchronous courses teach students to use creative problem-solving to anticipate, detect and mitigate common cyber and physical infrastructure threats. Furthermore, many students are able to transfer their credits from their previous schooling to earn this modern degree without starting over. What Are You Waiting For?
