Cowley College Golden TigersThere is a $5 registration fee per person for the semester and a $2 fee per class. Some classes have additional costs or supplies that are needed.

Those attending fall enrollment are reminded to bring mailing labels to use on the enrollment form and sign-up sheets. This saves writing one’s name multiple times and speeds up the enrollment process.

Three educational trips are planned throughout the fall. Their destinations include Coffeyville and Chanute, Wellington and Oxford, and Wichita.

The Golden Tigers also are offering a driver safety class from 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 13-14. The class will be held in Room 207 of the Webb-Brown Academic Center. Ron Upton will serve as  instructor for the class. The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.
