Requirements

Our doors are open to you

If you have graduated high school, have your GED, or are interested in transferring to Three Rivers from another college, there is a spot for you in the degree and certificate programs of Three Rivers. We accept applications throughout the year — you do not have to wait for the fall semester to begin your studies. Learn more about the application process at Degrees & Certificates – How to Enroll.

Do you attend another college and want to take a course for credit while you are home during vacation? Or, are you interested in taking a course simply for the joy of learning and not for a degree? You are also welcome. As a non-degree student, it’s simply a matter of demonstrating that you meet the specific prerequisites for a particular class. Learn more under “Additional Information if you are a visiting or non-degree student” on this page.
