Programs and admission
Hello, I was interested in changing careers and have been interested in learning about agriculture. While I have been looking at many different farms, and educational programs available, I find most would like you to have some sort of farming background, association, or prior college degrees. I wanted to know what is the prerequisite for your agriculture courses.
We are glad to hear you are interested in our College. You do not have to have a farm background or prior degrees. We suggest that you contact the Admissions office:
