Cottey College is designed as a transfer institution with 95% of graduates transferring to four-year colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad, including Smith College, University of Missouri, University of Washington, Pepperdine University, Mount Holyoke College, and others.
Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard founded Cottey College in 1884 with the firm belief that women deserved the same quality education as men. When she became a member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, Virginia Alice Cottey Stockard realized that P.E.O. paralleled her own goals and ideas about higher education for women.
In 1927, the P.E.O. Sisterhood accepted Cottey College as a gift from Virginia Alice CotteyStockard. This made Cottey College the only nonsectarian college owned and supported by women. Ever since, the P.E.O. Sisterhood has continued to support and help provide excellent educational opportunities for women.
