Sumner Campus

Welcome to the Cowley College Sumner Campus

Cowley College is coming to Sumner County in a BIG way! Historically, area students had to move to Arkansas City for the campus experience or take classes in satellite locations in Mulvane or Winfield. The need for a college campus in Sumner County has long been noted and now it's coming to fruition.

Cowley College offers more than 80 different certificates and degrees attracting students from across the globe because of the College's premier online course offerings, multiple campus locations, quality residential living, as well as nationally acclaimed athletic programs and state-of-the-art training facilities. And now, Cowley College is bringing their education programs to Sumner County in a campus setting.

Groundbreaking began in October 2017. The half-cent sales tax increase to fund the campus development began April 1, 2017. The tax will expire in ten years and will generate the $12 million dollars needed to construct a campus setting with an emphasis on vocational learning. All money generated from the sales tax will be used only on the Sumner County campus. Sumner County sales tax dollars will not support college activities in Ark City or our other satellite locations.

This campus will improve the quality of life for Sumner County residents and ensure job opportunities and economic advancement.
