Program Details

The Associate in Agriculture – College Transfer degree is designed for students interested in transferring to a bachelor’s program after the completion of general education and introduction agriculture courses. Students have the option to choose between an AA, AS, or AAS degree. Based on the type of degree chosen, courses will vary slightly. Individuals enrolled in this program are encouraged to consult with an advisor and review the transfer policy at the transfer college or university.

Northeast Community College has some transfer agreements with the following schools: Wayne State College, South Dakota State University – Brookings and the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Students should be able to review copies of the specific plans of study of these transfer schools from the Agriculture office.

Due to the online environment of this program, students should have an understanding of computer skills such as sending e-mail and deleting, saving, downloading and uploading documents. Reliable Internet access is also encouraged for students enrolled in distance learning. Course materials should be accessible from a laptop, tablet or smartphone for increased convenience for on-the-go students.

All of the associate’s degree options require students to complete at least 70 credit hours. Students enrolled in the AS degree will take more science intensive courses such as biology, chemistry and physics. The AA focuses more on fine arts, wellness, mathematics and English courses. Students should select the type of degree based on their interests. Some courses must be taken in a sequential order and students, along with an advisor, should be aware of these courses and schedule based on availability. Students will have the opportunity to participate in an optional cooperative internship during the summer.
