The Associate of Science in Agriculture is a transfer degree for the student who plans to major in an agricultural related field. Northark has agreements with the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and with Arkansas Tech University to offer students seamless options for transfer into specified agriculture majors or concentrations using the AS in Agriculture degree. Students planning to transfer into one of the specified majors/areas of concentrations at either of these transfer institutions should work closely with a Northark advisor to follow the prescribed selection of courses, and other requirements, needed for transfer into the program with junior level classification.
The My Academic Plan (MAP) serves as a guideline to graduate in four semesters. The Key Milestones/Prerequisites listed for each semester highlight significant achievements that must be completed in the degree track. Students who do not follow the four semester plan and/or who do not complete identified milestones may jeopardize their financial aid (if applicable) and/or delay graduation.
Northark recognizes the important connection between student success and academic preparedness. Students may be required to complete one or more of the following courses before enrolling in the MAP sequence of courses. Summer and/or intercession courses may be required to graduate within four semesters. Developmental course credits earned do not count towards degree completion requirements.
