The campus has planned to open extension program (weekend, summer and night) with in short period of time.

Although the  Holeta Satellite Campus in collaboration with Holeta Polytechnic College has its own current governance structure, there is a need to restructure its current governance structure and devise a new one that meets its present role as a regional center of excellence that offer internationally recognized diploma and degree programs in  agriculture and agro- Processing. This will require not only investing in facilities like machines, equipment, infrastructure development and teaching facilities to address the objectives of the Centre of excellence, the college will  have also strengthen its governance and management, institutionalize industry linkages, develop and review market-relevant and competency-based training programs, train the managers and teachers of the college, upgrade key training facilities and equipment, and provide support to non-project national TVET colleges. Furthermore, the college will establish teaching-factory workshops, and provide teachers in-service, farmers, and youth training

Hence, the Campus is not only an amazing place to spend unforgettable student years, but it is also a place where students can develop intellectually and get a degree that is respected by employers around the world.
