Northeastern State University and Oklahoma State University have complimentary agricultural programs and have collaborated to deliver an affordable education and unique student experience.
Why NEO?

The agriculture department offers students a wide range of disciplines to study. The Associate of Science degree is designed to prepare students for transfer into a bachelor’s degree program at a four-year college. NEO students can choose from degrees in agriculture or pre-veterinary science. 

Why OSU?

You’re not a number in our college – you’re and individual with unique needs, interests and goals. We make it a top priority to create a family atmosphere in and out of the classroom, while still challenging you with rigorous and engaging academics offered by our dedicated faculty, and plenty of opportunity for gaining real-world experience.
