Evening Advantage
In most careers, those with a college degree have an edge in finding and succeeding at better, higher-paying positions. However, many working adults find it difficult to achieve a college degree because of factors such as a demanding full-time job, children to raise, and a busy personal life.

Designed for Working Adults

To serve the needs of busy adult learners, Three Rivers has created the Evening Advantage program. With Evening Advantage, working adults are provided a guided path to an Associate of Arts degree in two years, taking classes on Monday and Thursday nights.

Benefits of Evening Advantage

If you juggle work and family commitments yet want to earn a college degree to advance your career and increase your salary potential, Evening Advantage offers these benefits:
  • Guaranteed classes and schedule as long as you follow the plan.
  • Set schedule allows you to plan your life to balance work, family, and college.
  • You'll join a cohort - a group of students who move through the program together - allowing you to develop study teams and lasting friendships.
  • Accelerated classes two nights per week gives you full-time student status so you may qualify for full financial aid.
  • You'll benefit from Three Rivers' quality college courses, affordable costs, and personalized service.

Gateway to Graduation

Those who successfully complete the Evening Advantage program will graduate with an Associate of Arts in General Education and can then transfer into a bachelor's degree completion program. This includes the completion programs offered at Three Rivers by Central Methodist University and Hannibal-LaGrange University. The AA degree will also transfer to four-year colleges and universities in Missouri or throughout the country, including online programs.
