Free Tuition for High School Students
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 may incur some small fees (tools, background checks as required, supplies, etc.)
