Courses Associated with Special Programs

All courses are associated with their own programs, and may restrict enrollment of students outside the major. Two important on-line programs which have restrictions are GPIDEA YOUTH and GPIDEA Community Development. Listed on Schedule of Courses available here use this link, the course has language that includes a date after which non GPIDEA students may register, and a note to: “Please add your name to the Waitlist” to which a link is provided. We encourage students to pursue these course procedures, which we hope will result in being permitted to enroll in the course. GPIDEA programs are listed fully on this page click here. Certificates and programs may be taken concurrently with agricultural education, but additional procedures are needed to be accepted into these programs, and enrollment will extend the amount of time required to complete the degree.
