State FFA Degree Completer Program

For a Michigan high school student, making a commitment to education in agriculture, food and natural resources through earning a Michigan High School State FFA degree is a big accomplishment.

FFA Degree Completers can earn 6.0 general credits coming into Michigan State University (MSU) or the Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT).

This program is available through a partnership with MSU, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources (CANR) and the Michigan Department of Education.

FFA students meet with Sparty.
