Cowley officially opens Westside Center in Wichita


Westside CenterAdding its second enrollment center in Wichita, Cowley College opened its Westside Center on Wednesday. The Center is located at 8821 West 21 Street, Suite 400.

The building, which is 3,000 square feet, is on the southwest corner of Tyler and 21st Street. The Center will have two employees on hand to help students enroll for online courses and provide financial aid information and information about courses offered at the Cowley College campuses. They will also conduct Asset Testing and provide workshops based upon what the need in a certain area may be.

"We're really excited to see this location open,” said Ben Schears, Cowley College executive director of enrollment and outreach services. “It's located at a very busy intersection so we will get great visibility. One of the biggest benefits for the college, in addition to a boost in enrollment, will be the ability to attract potential students to our online classes and have a place where they can find out about taking classes on the main campus in Ark City."

The college’s e-Learning Center opened on the east side of Wichita last June and has online and hybrid course offerings. The e-Learning Center is located at 4900 E. Pawnee, Suite 106.

With the opening of its Westside Center, Cowley College has two locations in Wichita, two in Mulvane, and two in Winfield to go along with its main campus in Arkansas City.
