MAXWELL AIR FORCE BASE, Ala. -- The Community College of the Air Force is completing the data synchronization of the Air University Student Information System.

AU began the migration of CCAF data to the AU SIS on Sept. 28, 2022. To date, AU has transferred more than 260,000 active student records. 

At this time, the AU SIS can provide multiple services, including:

  • Students can enroll and participate in courses.
  • Counselors have several tools to assist students with their educational needs.
  • CCAF officials can enter new transcripts.
  • CCAF can deliver certificates and transcripts that were completed before Sept. 28, 2022.

The AU SIS replaces a dozen decades old semi-autonomous systems that became increasingly difficult to update. It is designed to make it easier for students to check their course progress in real time and less cumbersome for educators to track students’ academic lifecycles.

Upon completion, CCAF students will be able to produce transcripts and have access to enhanced counselor-to-student experiences within the AU SIS. However, we continue to troubleshoot challenges associated with mass graduation of students, producing transcripts for students, and providing base education advisors visibility on student progress. We will provide an additional update at the end of April, unless sooner resolved.   

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understand the user experience is not where we expect it to be.  We’re aggressively working through the unanticipated challenges with data linkages between the AU SIS and MilPDS.”  Lt. Gen. Andrea Tullos, AU commander, said. “AU and CCAF will continue to process incoming student transcripts and fine tune the AU SIS to meet the needs of our faculty, instructor cadre, and the AU students of today and the future.”
