Cowley College Online
Cowley Username & Student ID Number
Your Cowley Username for all of the following will be your last name, the first letter of your first name, and the last six digits of your Cowley student ID number. (If your last name includes a hyphen or apostrophe, they will be removed from your username.) For example, John Smith – with the Cowley ID number 999234567 – will have the username: SmithJ234567.
New Student Passwords
All new student passwords are being randomly generated by the Student Information System. The same randomly generated password is carried over to the student Cowley login after being enrolled. All students receive this randomly generated password along with their username to their personal email address when they apply on the Cowley website.
Students can contact email@example.com if they are having trouble logging in but they should first try the username and password that they received in their personal email. A student will get a BlackBoard account and an Office365 account after they are enrolled.
Once enrolled, students can change the password themselves at the following link:
If you are taking an online course, a hybrid course, or a course that has been enhanced with web content, you will need to log into Blackboard, which is the Learning Management System (LMS) that the college uses for web-based instruction. You can access Blackboard from any web browser (on or off campus).
Select Blackboard Login option in the Logins & Links drop-down menu located in top banner of every page in www.cowley.edu. Click on Blackboard Login.
You will need to complete the Blackboard online orientation before proceeding in coursework utilizing Blackboard. The Blackboard Orientation course is found under “My Courses” in Blackboard.
Student Email (Cowley Student Email)
Your Student Email (or Cowley Student Email) account is used to keep you informed. Your Student Email account will provide you with notifications of college deadlines, campus events, weather closings, add/drops of classes, etc. This is one of the primary methods through which college personnel will communicate with you, so it is vital to check it often.
You can access Student Email from any web browser (on or off campus). To do so, go to the Cowley College home page at http://www.cowley.edu. Click on the Logins & Links tab at the top of the page and then click on the Student Email link. Log in using your Cowley Username and your password. There are instructions for setting up your Student Email account to forward automatically to another email account if you prefer.
Tiger Connect allows you to enroll in classes, check your financial aid status, print your schedule, view your grades, print an unofficial transcript, apply for your parking permit, vote in student elections, and much more.

Using Computers on Campus or Access to Wireless Network
Computers are available on all of our campuses for you to use. Students may use their own computers to access the wireless network from various “hot spots” on the Cowley campuses and student centers. To do so, you will need to log in using your Cowley Username and password.
