Can I Afford TRCC?

Make your money count

Three Rivers provides one of the most affordable cost-per-college-credit tuition rates you can find: $155/credit for full-time students. Students who plan to complete a four-year degree at one of the dozens of colleges and universities with which we have academic transfer agreements can save tens of thousands of dollars compared to completing all four years at other institutions.

If you plan to enter the workforce after earning your Associate’s Degree — we offer numerous in-demand degrees like nuclear engineering, accounting, and nursing — you will do so with a mere fraction of the national average student debt, which for 2016 graduates of four-year programs is over $37,000.

Support throughout the financial aid process

Our Financial Aid office will help you throughout the process of applying for federal, state, and other forms of financial aid.

Once enrolled at Three Rivers, you have the opportunity to earn scholarships and grants related to your field of study based on your academic performance and other criteria (your advisor will help you apply). There are also work-study opportunities available for eligible students.
