Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students.

So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare schools.

I was just recently able to fulfill the education and experience that I gained as a Cowley Tiger. I will be employed in Ark City at Creekstone Farms while still pursuing an undergraduate degree in business. This is truly a premier institute of higher education!

Overall Rating:

I think it is pretty crabby that the college requires you to be 60 years old to get a GOLDEN TIGERS CARD when you are a graduate of the college but apparently that is how the board of trustees operate depends on if you donate lots of money or land then you get whatever you want

Completely worthless school that will never try to actually help their students with the most basic of requests.
