The first two years at Ridgewater College can lead to completion of a Bachelor of Science degree in various agriculture majors at four-year institutions such as the University of Minnesota (St. Paul and Crookston campuses), Southwest State University, and South Dakota State University. Articulation agreements have been created to make transferring easier. An adviser will work with students to help guarantee transfer of credits, depending on the choice of college and major. Ridgewater College also offers technical agriculture programs leading to two-year diplomas and Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degrees.
