College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources (UAGNR or CAHNR)

The UAGNR/CAHNR Office of Academic Programs is the primary "Help Desk" for initial student questions regarding majors and programs in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. For more specific questions about individual majors, students may also contact UAGNR Department Offices (listed below) and faculty advisors.

Recommended course sequences are established for students who start in UAGNR majors at regional campuses. Students take one year of appropriate general education courses and prerequisites that will keep them fully on-track for completing graduation requirements in the same time frame as students who start at Storrs. New transfer students, students who change from another UConn program into UAGNR, and students who choose to remain at regional campuses for more than one year are encouraged to contact the Office of Academic Programs about courses and requirements.
