Transfering to K-State Agronomy
Agronomy majors commonly take the courses listed below during their first two years at Kansas State University. You should plan to complete as many of these courses as possible at your college. The Agronomy department at Kansas State University keeps two-year community colleges and other four year colleges informed of courses that may be transferred to agronomy programs of study. Consult your advisor to determine transferability of courses you select during your first two years of study.
Visit the K-State Office of Admissions site to see how your courses transfer to K-State! You can search by specific classes, or you can search by the Agronomy curriculum.
I encourage you to enroll in the DirectLink program to have the most collaborative approach between your community college advisor and the Agronomy department at K-State.
