The Three Rivers College ACHIEVE Program is a comprehensive approach to building academic success, persistence, graduation, and transfer for our students. Through our dynamic program focus, we develop student talent and efficacy. Academic support plans are crafted to meet the unique needs of each student.
The aim of ACHIEVE is to help our students establish clear attainable goals and then complete the steps needed to reach those goals. College can be an overwhelming experience for many new students. ACHIEVE provides academic support, advising, tutoring, guidance, and counseling to help students stay on track and create their own success stories.
ACHIEVE is a federally funded TRiO Student Support Services Program that serves first-generation and low-income students and students with disabilities. Our program is designed to help students navigate college life, be better college students, and achieve their graduation goals.

Advising & Counseling
ACHIEVE advisors help students navigate the community college system, decide on majors, and improve their study skills. Advisors also offer personal, career, academic, and financial aid counseling.
One-on-one and small group tutoring is available. Tutoring is provided by qualified Learning Coaches who are familiar with the requirements and expectations of Three Rivers instructors. Check out our list of Learning Coaches and their subjects below, then call 573-840-9650 to make an appointment.
Study skills seminars and transfer workshops are offered throughout the semester to supplement the learning process and ensure academic success.

ACHIEVE advisors serve as advocates for program participants. When a participant has academic, financial, or career questions, advisors act on behalf of the student to find the answers to those questions.
Students served by ACHIEVE find themselves surrounded with support services to help them succeed in the college environment. Students will be encouraged and challenged to reach their academic potential.
