Bachelor Completion & Transfer Equivalency
Three Rivers 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.

The 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, where classes are small, where A+ funds can be used and where 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.

Enrollment in the Bachelor Completion Program
For information about enrolling at Three Rivers for convenient, affordable quality college courses and career and technical training, contact Will Cooper at 573-840-9712, or via e-mail at wcooper@trcc.edu.

Bachelor's degree completion programs available are listed below. Contact information for these programs follows this list.
