OverviewThrough the AG*IDEA consortium of universities, UNL graduate students can now complement their degree programs with additional online courses in horticulture and grassland management. The courses are taught by faculty from the following institutions: Kansas State University, North Carolina State University, North Dakota State University, Oklahoma State University, South Dakota State University, Texas Tech University and the University of Nebraska-Kearney. Please visit the certificate pages to see the available courses.
All courses are offered at the AG*IDEA common graduate tuition rate of $545 per credit hour for the 2016–17 academic year. The AG*IDEA common tuition includes all fees, exclusive of the application fee, but does not include textbooks and other materials that may be required by instructors.
Because this is a special contract program at UNL, enrollment and student billing are handled outside the MyRed system. Enrollment is handled by Diane Wasser, CASNR Distance Education Consortium Coordinator, and billing is handled by UNL's Office of Online and Distance Education. Students cannot enroll in these courses via MyRed. Once a student has enrolled, a registration confirmation and tuition statement will be mailed to the student's address of record.
Students interested in enrolling in these courses should contact Diane Wasser, 402.472.6251, to request appropriate forms. A Memorandum of Courses (MOC) is also required to take the Ag*Idea classes.
