  • Knock off a prerequisite or degree requirement this winter break.
  • Earn 3-4 credits in just three weeks.
  • Lighten your course load for next year.
  • Attend another college? Three Rivers credits are often transferable, and you’ll save up to 45-65% on tuition and fees.

Registration starts November 2.

Below is a complete list of all credit courses starting December 29.

Why do so many students take a Winter Session Class?

Kevin Valencia, winter session studentAccording to Kevin Valencia, a Three Rivers graduate:

“I earned the same amount of credits in less time. It helps you get to your goal faster. There are also so many online courses that you can take them at home on your work schedule.

Even though it is a lot to learn in a short time, the professors really help you stay on track and work with you while holding you to the same standard.”

Kevin is now attending Eastern Connecticut State University for a bachelor’s degree in Business General Studies with a focus on Business Administration.
