Building on your associate’s degree

The Agriculture Pathways Partnership allows you to receive a bachelor’s degree from Missouri State while attending classes at one of the partner institutions. As part of this partnership, you will transfer your student status to Missouri State upon completion of your associate’s degree, even though you may never attend classes on the Springfield campus of Missouri State.

Admission process

To apply for and gain admittance into the Agriculture Pathways Partnership program, you must complete the steps listed below:

  1. Apply for program admittance
  2. Apply for admission to Missouri State using the Transfer Application
  3. Pay the required application fee

Dual enrollment

As a student of the Agriculture Pathways Program, you may need to be dually enrolled at both your two-year institution and Missouri State University. The Consortium Agreement allows the government to recognize that you are a full-time student between the two different educational institutions when applying for federal funds. More information is available about consortium agreements and financial aid on the office of student financial aid website.

The Course Enrollment Form is sometimes necessary in order to enroll for credit before you have officially been admitted to Missouri State University.
