Dr. Rita Gulstad, CMU provost, and Dr. Wesley A. Payne, president of TRC, added their signatures to the agreement, which renews a longstanding partnership that has seen many students benefit.

“The partnership between CMU and Three Rivers is an excellent collaboration,” Gulstad said at the ceremony. “This agreement is just one of the ways we work together to promote seamless transfer opportunities and academic excellence.”

The updated articulation agreement addressed conditions of transfer for areas of admissions and matriculation, transfer of credit, and program plans to be updated annually. The agreement specifically applies to students earning Associate of Arts, Associate of Arts in Teaching, and Associate of Applied Science degrees, ensuring their seamless transfer into bachelor-level programs at CMU.

The partnership between Central’s College of Graduate and Extended Studies (CGES) and TRC has been a prolific one, serving dozens of students dually-enrolled at both schools each semester. Central serves TRC students at a number of locations, including Poplar Bluff, Kennett, Dexter, Sikeston, and online.

The CMU rodeo team has also been a staple of the partnership between the schools since 2019, with the team competing as a member of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association. Students compete in events across the region, taking part in rodeo competitions in Missouri, Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, and Tennessee throughout the season.
