Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.67 Average Rating
Big enough to where not too many people know your life, but small enough to where the teachers know your name; that is what makes Cowley so nice. Being an hour away from all the crazy of a big town one can really dive in and study. As College says All the knowledge without all the cost.
Mayrelee from Wichita, KS
Cowley County Community College is a college that has a very home like feel. Everyone is willing to help you as much as they possibly can. The academics at Cowley are stellar.
