This is the UH Hilo report. News about people, events and programs at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo.
The College of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resource Management (CAFNRM) has reached a new agriculture course articulation agreement with 5 UH system community colleges.
The agreement with Hawaiʻi, Kauai, Leeward, and Windward Community Colleges and Maui College will make it easier for community college students to transfer to the College through a process similar to the 2 + 2 program.
In the past, most agriculture courses offered by community colleges could only be used as electives, when transferring to a four year institution. But now, those courses can be used to meet specific agriscience requirements for obtaining a BS degree.
Interest in community college agriculture courses is on the rise, due in part to initiatives like “local first,” assuming a greater role in their culinary programs. With this agreement, these students now have an easier academic pathway between two and four-year institutions.
