* Note that Vincennes University "AGRI" courses were previously identified with a "SAG" prefix. Credits earned in "SAG" courses are also transferable to Purdue University and applicable to fulfill requirements and electives in College of Agriculture undergraduate plans of study.

Vincennes University Agribusiness "AGBS" and "BAG" credits and Horticulture Technology "HORT" credits transfer to Purdue University as undistributed credits, but are not applicable to fulfill requirements or electives in College of Agriculture undergraduate plans of study.

Other Recommended Courses

In addition to the articulated Agriculture (AGRI) courses, the following are recommended for transfer student applicants to the College of Agriculture from the following Vincennes University Division of Science and Mathematics college transfer programs of study.

•  Geological and Earth Science/Geosciences – Agriculture Concentration

•  Geological and Earth Science/Geosciences – Forestry and Conservation Concentration

•  Chemical Sciences – Food Science Concentration

•  Chemical Sciences – Pre-Veterinary Concentration

•  Engineering Science – Agricultural and Biological Engineering Concentration

•  Engineering Science – Food Process Engineering Concentration

Provisions of the long-standing agreement between the College of Agriculture and Vincennes University that were determined in the late 1950s allow students who earn the Associate of Science degree in one of the foregoing concentrations to be admitted to the College of Agriculture with a minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average in lieu of the 2.50 listed on the page that presents “Transfer Student Admissions Criteria.”  Also, after the Associate in Science Degree is awarded by Vincennes University in one of these programs, credits may be transferred for courses in which “D” grades were earned to fulfill requirements.

Credits from these courses are transferable and applicable in College of Agriculture plans of study.  See Vincennes University academic catalog for specific concentration requirements.
