Registration will open November 4 for Winter and Spring classes at Three Rivers College for new and returning students at all of the College’s locations.

Online and on-site registration will continue through December 13 for Winter session and January 10 for Spring semester at the Poplar Bluff campus and the locations in Sikeston, Dexter, Kennett, and Cape Girardeau. The Winter session begins December 16, and Spring semester begins January 13.

“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 working adults according to Adams. “We know our students have busy lives. Registering early is the best way to ensure their class schedules work well with their other obligations.”

With locations across Southeast Missouri, Three Rivers is an affordable way to earn a high-quality education close to home. Its small class sizes and student-first focus are ideal for students who may not feel comfortable in large institutions.

“We want to help our students achieve their goals, whether it’s to move up where they work now, start a new career, learn a trade, or continue their journey in higher education,” said Dr. Leslie Gragg, Department Chair of Science, Math, Social Sciences, and HPER at Three Rivers College.
