The program is designed to allow individuals with two year degrees from select North Carolina Community College Agricultural Programs, and the Agricultural Institute at NC State University, to transfer their associate ‘s degree in an agricultural related discipline into the Bachelor of Science In Agricultural Education at NC A&T State University.   The program can be completed totally online or through campus based offerings.
