CASNR Transfer Benefits

Transferring to CASNR offers an outstanding opportunity for transfer students from area Community Colleges. Students who have started their academic career at one of our partner schools can then transfer courses based on fulfilling their degree intent at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, rather than specific course equivalencies. We particularly encourage and facilitate numerous degree-specific transfer programs to best prepare you for today's challenges in the real world. Personal interaction is at the core of this transfer program, with our Coordinator of Advising and Academic Program Enhancement, Karen Jackson, working with you on evaluating your transfer credits. In addition, our CASNR advisors engage in joint advising with community college advisors to make sure all students are cared for through the process. Finally, we offer scholarships specifically for the needs of our transfer students. It all means we make it as welcoming as possible for you to transition to CASNR.

24 Years and Counting

For more than 24 years, the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) has hosted an annual spring Transfer Conference at various locations across Nebraska. Feel free to join us in the upcoming year. Watch for Transfer Conference to be announced in March or April.

A to B Programs for Transfer Students

The A to B Program, a joint academic program offered by the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR) and participating community colleges, allows students to complete the first two years of a degree program at the participating community college and continue their education and study in a degree program leading toward a bachelor of science degree.

The A to B Program provides a basic knowledge plus specialized course work. Students transfer into CASNR with a junior standing.

Depending on the community college, students enrolled in the A to B Program may complete the requirements for an associate of science or associate of applied science degree at the community college, transfer to Nebraska, and work toward a bachelor of science degree.

Below are the participating community colleges. Click on the program to see the requirements for either the associate of science or associate of applied science degree.
