Cottey Students Stand Out.

Education for Women
Learning matters here, our academic standards are high and our student support is strong. At the heart of it all is a motivated, high-energy community pursuing thoughtful action. That’s why we’ve been named among the best!
Supported by Women
Cottey was founded by a woman who wanted to create a college where women were the center of attention. Today, almost 130 years later, that legacy continues. As a student you experience the support and connection with a sisterhood that lives on after you graduate.
