Our Students Do It All
A remarkable 92% of Institute of Applied Agriculture (IAA) students are hired for a job in their field as soon as they complete their certificate. For some of those students who don’t jump straight into the job market after two years, continued studies at UMD keep them busy. These are the students who go on to pursue a bachelor’s degree in the College of Agriculture & Natural Resources (AGNR). Some apply for undergraduate admission upon finishing their two-year IAA certificate; others apply after their first year as Agriculture Forward students. Regardless, many of these students engage fully in the college experience while earning two UMD credentials.
