POPLAR BLUFF, Mo. — Three Rivers College and MU have signed several agreements to make it easier to transfer credits between the schools.

The agreements were signed Tuesday for teaching, nursing, occupational therapy assistant, physical therapy assistant, forestry and health science programs.

School officials say the agreements will make it easier for the community college's students to transition to bachelor's degree programs at the university.

Poplar Bluff's Daily American Republic reports  Three Rivers is negotiating with the university to sign more agreements. The school in Poplar Bluff also plans to discuss similar agreements with Missouri State University and Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Ark.

Missouri now has agreements with all 12 Missouri community colleges.
