Office of Academic Programs


The Office of Academic Programs is the hub of student activity for the College of Agriculture. We are located in the  Hageman Center for Student Achievement and Leadership on the first floor of the Agricultural Administration Building (AGAD 121). We are here to answer your questions about the College of Agriculture.

The Office of Academic Programs also serves as a coordination point for advising, leadership, career resources, student organizations, academic excellence, scholarships, tutoring, and much more.

Ask us a question, request a tour, or just stop by. We would love to welcome you into our family—the College of Agriculture.
