A minimum of 45 hours must be completed for each credit hour earned, with a 3 credit hour maximum for each experience (135 hours = 3 credits). The experience must be arranged by the student and approved by the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences prior to the start of the experience. To gain approval, a student must submit the completed CSSC 492 Memorandum of Agreement (contract) and have it approved and signed by their experience supervisor, academic advisor and the undergraduate coordinator. In addition to the work described in the contract, a student will complete a reflective assignment. Students will need to provide their own transportation to experiences held off-campus and purchase general and professional liability insurance.

Course prefix and name being changed to reflect the merger of the Departments of Crop Science and Soil Science in to Crop and Soil Sciences.


Course description is being revised to explain the hours of academic engagement expected per credit hour.
