Enrollment grows at Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Enrollment continues to grow at the Cape Girardeau Partnership for Higher Education (CGPHE).

The program is now entering its second year. It’s a partnership between Mineral Area College, Southeast Missouri State University and Three Rivers Community College.

CGPHE’s Tinea Ortega says enrollment has spiked sharply this semester.

"For fall when we started out, our first number was about 190," Ortega said. "In spring we actually increased, so were about 210 during Spring and summer, we had about 60 for summer and then this fall we have peaked at about 283 students."

CGPHE services ten school districts and provides the first two years of general education programs, mainly students who want to transfer to Southeast.

Its facilities are located at the Cape Girardeau Career & Technology Center.
