Articulation Agreement Reached Between NMSU and Oklahoma State

LAS CRUCES -- Six New Mexico State University forestry students will be able to complete their bachelor's degrees at Oklahoma State University while paying in-state tuition, according to an articulation agreement reached between the two colleges.

"There are no forestry schools in New Mexico, therefore paying in-state tuition at OSU is a real bargain," said John Mexal, NMSU professor of agronomy and horticulture.

Articulation agreements between two colleges allow credit for course work taken at one college to be applied toward a degree program at the other college.

"Students can take lower level-classes at NMSU which will apply to a Bachelor of Science in forestry at OSU," said Kathleen Kelsey, articulation coordinator for NMSU's College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences . "Students can move from one institution to another without duplicating work or sacrificing the quality of their education."

Students are told which NMSU courses are equivalent to the OSU courses needed for a degree in forestry. OSU has agreed to accept these transfer credits from NMSU.
