Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative approves fourth partnership with Minot State

Written by: Minot State University

MINOT, N.D. – Minot State University announced Monday its fourth partnership with the Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC), a program between the United States Air Force and civilian institutions to provide Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) graduates advanced education opportunities.
AU-ABC approved Minot State’s Bachelor of Science in Human Services with a Major in Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities as a Category I program. The major joins Minot State’s Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, which was approved in October 2018, and Bachelor of General Studies and Bachelor of Applied Business Information Technology, approved in July 2019.
“Minot State is committed to building collaborative partnerships as part of its strategic plan, and we are excited to have a fourth AU-ABC program approved,” said Laurie Geller, Minot State vice president for academic affairs. “Our partnership with the Air Force allows airmen to complete their bachelor’s degree online with Minot State from anywhere in the world.”
The degree in human services with a major in intellectual/developmental disabilities prepares students to become direct support professionals who provide quality support to individuals with developmental disabilities on the job and in their community. Climbing the career ladder to a bachelor’s degree meets federal requirements for qualified intellectual disabilities professionals (QIDP), also referred to as program coordinators or case managers in many waivered services. Other career options include leadership and supervisory positions in private and public human service organizations and state agencies.
AU-ABC Category I programs guarantee a CCAF graduate can complete their Bachelor’s degree with no more than 60 additional credits. Minot State is currently pursuing a Category II agreement for its Bachelor of Science in Management.
