Agricultural Operations

A text graphic with agricultural graphics that reads "Agriculture at KCC."

The Agricultural Operations Program is a new partnership between Kellogg Community College and the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources’ Institute of Agriculture and Technology. Launching formally in the Fall 2017 semester, the program is designed to prepare graduates for jobs or further education in agricultural technology fields.

Agricultural Operations students will have the opportunity to earn an Associate in General Studies degree at KCC while simultaneously earning an Agricultural Operations Certificate through MSU – with all coursework completed entirely at KCC. For more information, see the:

Coursework will be completed in classes on campus at KCC, online and in hybrid online/classroom formats, with students paying KCC tuition and fee rates for KCC classes and MSU tuition and fee rates for MSU classes. Students will have full access to resources at both institutions, and will be assisted by a local Agricultural Operations coordinator supporting the program through recruitment, advising, financial aid, course planning and other assistance.

The program will simplify the process for students interested in continuing their education in a four-year degree program at MSU after graduating from KCC, and also will allow students who have earned MSU credits through Future Farmers of America programming to apply up to six credits to the dual KCC-MSU degree and certificate program.

Once registration for the program opens late this spring or early summer, program applicants will apply jointly to both institutions with assistance from the local coordinator.
