Where can I find academic deadlines?
The Office of the Registrar provides academic deadlines for previous, current, and future semesters.
How do I add a course?
You can add a semester course in Enterprise Self-Service up until the 2nd Friday of the semester.
To add a course after the deadline, you will need to obtain instructor approval and fill out a Late Course Change form. This form must be filled out by you, the student; signed by your academic advisor; and stamped by the department offering the course before submitting it to ACES Academic Programs in 128 Mumford Hall. For Animal Sciences, you must provide proof from the instructor (email or otherwise) that you have permission to add the course. The departmental stamp will not be provided if you do not present proof from the instructor.
How do I drop a course?
You can drop a semester course in Enterprise Self-Service up until the 8th week of the semester. To do this, you will need to fill out a Petition to Drop a Course.
How can I transfer into AGED?
There are only certain times of the semester you can change majors and/or concentrations. This is generally the week before classes start, the first week of classes, and 2 weeks during the middle of the semester. You will also need to complete the College of ACES Inter/Intra College Transfer form. This form can be obtained from 128 Mumford Hall.
If you are interested in transferring into AGED, or would like to visit about the transfer process, contact Mr. Gary Ochs at (217) 244-5164, or 174B Bevier Hall.
What is the Agricultural Leadership Minor?
The Minor in Leadership Studies is available to all undergraduate students in good standing at the University of Illinois. This is a 17-18 credit hour minor (6 courses total) that requires three (3) foundational courses, one (1) Capstone course, and two (2) pre-approved electives.
What is a DARS report, why is it important, and how can I access it?
A DARS Audit is an unofficial audit of progress toward your degree that reflects courses you have already taken and courses you have in-progress. This report is extremely important, as it shows which requirements you still need to complete. To access your DARS audit, you must visit the Office of the Registrar’s website.
What help is available in finding internships and jobs?
The Agricultural Education Program has several students each year who participate in a variety of internship opportunities and pursue career opportunities related to agriculture. For more information about internships or career options, contact Dr. Kari Keating at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 174D Bevier Hall.
How do I access the Council on Teacher Education (CoTE)?
The CoTE website is an important resource for students in the Agricutural Science Education (ASE) concentration. The CoTE website provides information about early field experience and practicum teaching requirements, including the Illinois Certification Testing process, background checks, safety forms, safety forms, and many other important items.
What courses are required to complete the requirements for my degree?
Even though each concentration is similar, there are some classes that differ significantly. Please review the specific requirements for the Agricultural Science Education (ASE) and Agricultural Leadership Education (ALE) concentrations.
