Welcome Online Students!

Online and distance students are the reason for this University of Nebraska–Lincoln Agronomy and Horticulture Distance Education website. At the graduate level, students are expected to initiate communication between faculty advisors, peers, and staff. Since online master's and certificate students can't participate in on-campus activities, our team seeks to provide additional assistance and information for online students.
