North Central Missouri College and the University of Missouri are Joining Forces to “Collaborate for the Greater Good” of Agriculture Students in the State of Missouri.

North Central Missouri College and the University of Missouri have established new Articulation Agreements and will be signing the official papers on September 20th at the Lager Laboratory of Plant and Energy Science on the Barton Farm Campus at NCMC.

By establishing these agreements, NCMC and MU have expressed a shared commitment to increasing opportunities for student access to and success in higher education. This is done by clarifying transfer policies and procedures which will assure articulation between programs. North Central Missouri College’s Agriculture and Natural Resources department offers Associate of Applied Science and Associate of Arts Transfer degrees for students pursuing careers related to agriculture, natural resources and equine management (CAFNR) is the University of Missouri's College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources and is a collection of academic programs merging personalized teaching and advising, advanced research with global reach and extension programs with a sustained impact on Missouri's economy.

These agreements seek to assist students in making a seamless transfer from an Associate of Arts Degree at North Central Missouri College to a baccalaureate degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Agreements have been developed for the following Bachelor of Science degrees: Agricultural Education, Agricultural Systems Management and Plant Science.

Those visiting Barton Farm Campus from the University of Missouri-Columbia's CAFNR program are Dr. Bryan Garton (Associate Dean CAFNR – Director Academic Programs); Stephanie Chipman (Career Services Director); and Matt Pourney (Study Abroad Director). While on campus, these individuals will make presentations to NCMC’s Animal Science and Beef Production classes and tour Barton Farm Campus in addition to participating in the signing ceremony.
