Students in the Ag Transfer program will complete nearly all of their required general education courses (Math, Science, Social Science, and Humanities), while taking one or two agriculture courses each semester. JJC has seven articulated agriculture courses which include Animal Science, Agricultural Mechanization, Crop Production, Ag Economics, Soils, Microcomputer Skills in Ag, and Introduction to Ag Education. After completing 60-70 hours at JJC, an Ag Transfer student may transfer to the school of their choice as an incoming junior and select any specialization of agriculture.
"Without a question, the Joliet Junior College Ag Transfer Program was successful in helping me develop my academic ability as well as my communication, professionalism, and leadership skills. The JJC Agriculture instructors assisted me in selecting the proper classes so that I could transfer to the University of Illinois and obtain my BS degree in two years. In fact, my JJC classes transferred so well that I could have completed my degree in only 1½ years. Not only did my time at JJC prepare me to be competitive in the U of I classrooms, but it has also made me competitive in graduate school and in the job market. I would highly recommend the JJC Ag Transfer Program to anyone serious about their education and future goals in Agriculture."
