Enrollment is Open for Off-Campus MSU Landscape, Plant Science and Viticulture Certificate Programs

Michigan State University Institute of Agricultural Technology will conduct off-campus applied plant science, landscape and viticulture certificate programs at five west Michigan community college locations this fall.

Michigan State University (MSU) has been conducting practical plant, animal and technology certificate courses on its East Lansing campus for more than 100 years. Today’s students can access academic classes and several plant-related certificate programs at five community colleges in the western Lower Peninsula. The Landscape and Lawn Management Program is offered at Grand Rapids Community College, Montcalm Community Collegeand Muskegon Community College. Applied Plant Science and Viticulture are based at Lake Michigan College and Northwestern Michigan College. In addition to local access to MSU programs, the community college collaboration enables students to obtain an Associates Degree through supplemental coursework.

Michigan State University Institute of Agricultural Technology (MSU IAT) off-campus coordinators guide prospective students through the application process, development of a course of study and student internship. Now is a good time to contact local coordinators in preparation for fall classes as MSU IAT application deadlines and procedures may be much different than those of community colleges.

All MSU IAT courses are taught by Michigan State University faculty and staff and credits earned are fully transferable to an on-campus bachelor’s degree programs.
