Eligibility & Enrollment

Any adult may enroll in an online course if eligibility requirements are met and space is available. Many students take individual courses solely for personal or professional development. Enrollment in the University of Illinois or as a graduate student is not necessary to take classes for this purpose. However, credit earned in these courses will not apply towards a degree unless the student is admitted to the Graduate College, and then only 12 hours of credit for courses completed before admittance will be applied toward the degree.

Taking courses online at the University of Illinois can benefit agri-professionals in a wide range of professions from agriculture teachers to farmers, from chemical sales reps to crop consultants, and from ag lenders to green industry professionals.
