Student of the Month

The Student of the Month and Year is selected by the Cowley College faculty and staff. Students each year receive the honor of being selected as Student of the Month.  Each month, the selected student is recognized at the Board of Trustee’s meeting.  Anyone selected as ‘Student of the Month’ will be considered for ‘Student of the Year’.
There are many outstanding students that deserve the honor of being nominated. These students have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher and have accumulated 31 or more credit hours.  They are also enrolled full-time and are an outstanding citizen.
