School Notes

  • Three Rivers Community College is a multi-campus commuter college that serves Southeastern Connecticut and eastern regions of the state with a variety of credit and non-credit degree and certificate programs designed to meet the dynamic needs of our learning community. Three Rivers Community College was formed in 1992 as a result of a mandate enacted by the Connecticut General Assembly which merged community and technical colleges in five geographic areas around Connecticut. Named in recognition of the region's three primary rivers the Shetucket, the Yantic and the Thames, Three Rivers Community College was formed from the merger of Mohegan Community College and Thames Valley State Technical College, both located in Norwich. Currently, the college is still housed on both campuses. The college also has two off-campus instructional centers located at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton and Ella Grasso Technical School in Groton, CT. Through the integration of technical, career, and liberal arts programs within the College, Three Rivers' students are now able to move with greater ease from one program to another. Over three thousand five hundred full- and part-time students in credit programs and one thousand four hundred students in credit-free continuing education programs enroll each year at Three Rivers. Three Rivers Community College is accredited by the Connecticut Board of Governors for Higher Education and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.
