Welcome to the Website for the Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education
The Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education (CGPHE), located at the Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center (CTC), is a partnership of Mineral Area College (MAC), Southeast Missouri State University (Southeast) and Three Rivers College (Three Rivers).
The educational partners are committed to meeting student and community needs by providing community college-type services to the citizens of Cape Girardeau County and the Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center service region. The Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education service region includes the Advance, Cape Girardeau, Chaffee, Delta, Jackson, Leopold, Oak Ridge, Scott City, Scott County (Benton) and Woodland public school districts.
Course work, offered by Southeast and Three Rivers, is applicable to an Associate of Arts (AA) degree offered by Three Rivers. All courses applicable to the AA degree will be transcripted at Southeast and Three Rivers at the end of each semester.
MAC provides the technical portion of all Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree programs currently offered at the CTC.
The CGPHE is an open enrollment higher education center. Students enrolled in partnership courses will not be allowed to take courses at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau, to live in Southeast housing or permitted to use Southeast services funded by Southeast general fees. Students enrolled at Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau may not take partnership courses during the term in which they are enrolled. To facilitate awarding of financial aid, those partnership students who take courses with Three Rivers online or outside the partnership site will be partnership enrollments.
