How this NEW agreement works:

Courses selected will include agricultural sciences and natural resource courses negotiated as equivalent to courses in CASNR and will be periodically evaluated through exchange of course syllabi and examination by CASNR and NCTA.  It is the responsibility of NCTA to submit changes in course offerings and/or changes to the curriculum for review to CASNR.  It will be the responsibility of the CASNR Coordinator of Advising and Academic Program Enhancement to process general education courses. Likewise, it is the responsibility of CASNR to submit changes in course offerings and/or changes to the curriculum to NCTA.

 

Courses will include UNL's Achievement-Centered Education (ACE) courses identified as transferable by UNL's Undergraduate Studies as stated in the Course Equivalency List on the UNL website, http://admissions.un  l.edu/nebraska /eguiva lency.aspx.

 

To assist prospective transfer students enrolled in the A to B Academic Transfer Program with their academic planning, an advisor may be assigned from NCTA and an advisor from CASNR.

 

CASNR will allow students entering the A to B Academic Transfer Program to complete the program under the Memorandum of Agreement in effect at the time of their program initiation or select the current Memorandum of Agreement, but only one can be declared.

 

Students entering the A to B Academic Transfer Program will be allowed to complete the program under the degree requirements listed in the Online UNL Undergraduate Bulletin in effect at the time of their program initiation. Students must declare a Bulletin that includes UNL's Achievement-Centered Education (ACE) requirements.

 

Students enrolled in this program shall complete the requirements of an Associate of Science Degree at NCTA or through the NCTA/CASNR Reverse Transfer Program, and transfer all satisfactorily completed academic credits identified in the attached. Students who follow a Suggested Program of Study within the A to B Program enter CASNR with junior status. For students completing the Associate of Science Degree, CASNR class standing will depend on the equivalency of courses selected and the credit hours applied toward the degree.

 

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln allows no more than 60 semester hours (or 90 quarter hours) of degree applicable transfer credit from a two-year college to apply to a Bachelor degree.

 

Students transferring from NCTA must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) and at least a C average in the last semester of college enrollment (UNL Online Undergraduate Bulletin).

CASNR will accept no more than 10 semester hours of C-, D+, D and D- grades from NCTA. The C-, D+, D and D- grades can only be applied to free electives.

 

Students who transfer from NCTA will present credits for transfer evaluation in fulfillment of the Achievement-Centered Education (ACE) requirements.  Transfer of courses taken at other institutions toward fulfillment of the ACE requirements will be determined by CASNR.

 

Students transferring into CASNR must meet the UNL admission standards.

 

Total hours required for a Bachelor of Science degree from CASNR will total 120 credit hours.

 

Students who transfer from NCTA will have the opportunity to compete for CASNR transfer student scholarships.

 

A description of the A to B Academic Transfer Program will be available to view in the Online Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture College Catalog and on the CASNR website, http ://casnr.unl .edu. It will also be referenced in the University of Nebraska­ Lincoln Online Undergraduate Bulletin.

 

Amendments to this agreement will be, if deemed necessary by either CASNR or NCTA, negotiated annually.
