Explore a Wide Range of Technical
Career and Technical Education (CTE) prepares individuals for a wide
array of challenging careers in a demanding economy and specialized labor
market. It provides foundational skills, both technical and academic,
that lead to lucrative employment, as well as further educational opportunities.
Cowley College’s CTE department is in two locations—Ark
City campus (Walker Technology building) and Mulvane Technology Centers.
High school students can take tuition-free CTE classes at Cowley College!
The Kansas Board of Regents will pay for the tuition so that students
can gain the training needed to enter a profession, and in many cases,
earn an industry-recognized credential. Students will need to purchase
textbooks and will incur some fees (tools, department fee, background checks as
required, supplies, etc.)
