- Following is a sample four-year plan. Please note that student-specific plans may differ.
- Admitted students must meet with an advisor. Current students should also meet with an advisor and log on to Degree Works to check student-specific program progress.
Students completing the Associate of Science degree are required to earn a minimum of 60 credits. Twenty credits must be earned at USU (Logan campus, regional campuses, or USU Eastern). The agricultural science core will include 20 credits. The General Education requirements are the same as for other USU students earning the General Associate of Science degree. A minimum 2.0 GPA is required for graduation.
The degree program is master planned within the USU regional campus system. Multiple delivery technologies will be used. Face-to-face courses will be initiated at the Blanding or Price campus and made available to all USU-Eastern students through IVC at the corresponding site. Scheduling for IVC broadcast into high enrollment centers can be problematic when there are a limited number of receive classrooms available. Local site management will be key to successful program scheduling. Whereas the regional campus system has almost two decades of scheduling experience, it is highly unlikely that scheduling will be an issue. The curriculum outline earlier provides a template for understanding the consistent offering of courses – both for General Education and technical agriculture. For some regional campus locations, face-to-face courses could be offered. For other sites, courses will be limited to online and IVC broadcast.
