In addition to its academic core of course offerings, the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management has programs offering special opportunities to students:

Student-Managed Farm Enterprise Projects: A unique feature of the College is the student-managed farm enterprise project program. Students select, plan, and complete a management/production project under faculty supervision. If the student’s project is successful, some income can be gained along with the valuable first-hand experience in production and agribusiness.

Agriculture Development Program: CAFNRM’s Agriculture Development Program allows individuals the opportunity to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture, even though they lack the proper preparation for standard admission (i.e., low placement scores on SAT, low GPA standing, lack of college prep courses, etc.). Students accepted into this program are University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo CAFNRM students and are obligated to complete all academic requirements. These students are given a chance to take advantage of a comprehensive set of support courses and assistance to enhance their successes.
