CMU and Three Rivers College Broaden Articulation AgreementCentral Methodist University (CMU) has extended an articulation agreement with Three Rivers College (TRC), located in Poplar Bluff, Mo., which will assist TRC students to seamlessly transfer from the associate to bachelor’s degree by continuing their education with Central.

The agreement provides students the ability to transfer to CMU after completing the Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching, Associate of Fine Arts, Associate of Science, or Associate of Applied Science.

Students have the option of achieving their bachelor’s degrees through CMU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (Fayette campus), or College of Graduate and Extended Studies (CMU Centers across Missouri and online).

“CMU is excited to continue our partnership with Three Rivers College and to offer additional opportunities to students to ensure ease of transfer,” said Dr. Gulstad.

Currently, CMU has articulation agreements with TRC that apply the transfer of credits for the following bachelor degree programs: Accounting, Biology (with certification to teach), Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Health Sciences, Mathematics (with certification to teach), Nursing, Psychology, Special Education (K-12), Sociology, Music Education, and Sports Management, among others.
