“If you’re wanting to start your education journey at Three Rivers, it’s important to apply for admission as soon as possible,” said Chris Adams, Director of Enrollment Services at Three Rivers College. “The sooner students can complete the application, financial aid, and registration processes, the easier getting started becomes, and the easier it will be to create a class schedule that works for them.”

Registering early is especially important for returning students, according to Dr. Justin Hoggard, Dean of Instruction. “We know our students have busy lives. Registering early is the best way to ensure their class schedules work well with their other obligations,” said Hoggard.
