Bachelor Completion & Transfer Equivalency

Three Rivers College partners with four-year colleges and universities to offer bachelor’s degree completion programs on our Poplar Bluff campus, at our locations across southeast Missouri, and online. These partnership programs are available through our University Center.

Three Rivers College also helps prepare students for transfer to other Missouri universities and neighboring universities to complete their bachelor’s degree.

These programs allow area residents to complete freshman and sophomore level courses at Three Rivers, where the tuition is about one-third the cost of a four-year institution, classes are small, A+ funds can be used, and financial aid and scholarships go further. Once students earn an associate degree at Three Rivers, they can complete a bachelor's degree at a major college or university. See these programs below.

For more information about enrolling at Three Rivers for convenient, affordable, college courses or completing your bachelor’s degree close to home, contact Gail Tinsley at 573-840-9712 or via email at
