Cowley College and Fort Hays State to enter partnership; formal signing set for March 28

Tiger 2 tiger pathway

Cowley College and Fort Hays State University are entering a partnership that will guarantee scholarships for Cowley College graduates who have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and who transfer to Fort Hays State after graduating from Cowley College.

To symbolize this partnership, the senior leadership, including Dr. Mirta M. Martin, FHSU president, will travel to Cowley for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the schools.

Faculty, staff, students and community members are invited to attend the signing, which will take place at 3 p.m. Monday, March 28, at the Calder-Bonfy Amphitheatre located on Cowley College's main campus in Arkansas City. In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held in the Atrium inside the Brown Center.

The 2+2 agreement is being called Tiger2Tiger Pathway. The name is a good fit because the athletic teams of both Cowley College and Fort Hays State compete as "Tigers." An effort will be made to refine and further develop additional 2+2 agreements between the institutions with the goal of a seamless transfer of credit so that entire two-year degree programs of study transfer to a comparable four-year degree program of study.

At the conclusion of the signing, a reception will follow in the Earle N. Wright Community Room. Light refreshments and music will be provided.
