American FFA Degree Checklist
Before your state FFA staff submits your American FFA Degree application to the National FFA Center, they will use the
American FFA Degree Checklist to make sure that your application meets all of the
eligibility requirements. You may want to use this checklist before you send your application to your state FFA association.
Directed Lab/SAE Hours Tips
A common mistake found in American FFA Degree applications is the miscalculation of hours dedicated to
Directed Lab or SAE. In a single year, a person working a full-time 40-hour per week job will work a total 2,080 hours. When calculating the hours devoted to an SAE, try to determine how many hours were spent per week, using the 40-hour work week as a baseline. Remember that most students cannot realistically spend 40 hours or more per week on an SAE or Directed Lab, when some hours each day have to be dedicated to school, sleep, etc.
