Crowder College is a two-year community college in the Missouri state system, based in Neosho, with 3 other campuses in Cassville, Nevada and Webb City, Missouri. Named after Enoch Crowder, a prominent resident of Missouri and a World War I general, the school is known for its high graduation rate and the fact that a number of students live on campus. About 4,000 students are enrolled every year.


Academic tracks of study include Associate of Arts degrees as well as Associate of Science and Associate of Applied Science degrees and a number of certificates. Popular programs include the Business Administration Program, the Journalism/Public Relations Program and the Physics Program. Classes focusing on alternative energy are also becoming one of the most popular offerings.

Once students have completed their associate’s degree training, entry to public universities throughout the state of Missouri is guaranteed.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Applications are accepted on a year-round basis, with students having the option to begin their course of studies in the spring, summer or fall semesters. Applications can be completed online. Checks with the application fee must be mailed to the university. Applications will be held until this information and transcripts are received.

At the time of applying, applicants are asked to complete the (optional) Student Self Identification Report, which helps the college answer statistical questions requested by the government. While this information is voluntary and the decision has no effect on student admissions, it does help the college with its reporting obligations.

Financial Aid

The rate of tuition for each student will depend on whether the student lives. Tuition fees are based on a per-credit hour basis and prices rise for Out-of-State and Out-of-District students. Financial Aid is available to all applicants. Students are asked to first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The documents required for the FAFSA will also be reviewed by the Financial Aid office, so students are asked to hold onto these documents. There is a separate Crowder College Financial Aid Application, which can be accessed on the school website. Students are recommended to follow the application deadlines carefully, as admission could be delayed if forms arrive late. Work-study programs may also be available.

A number of different scholarships, as well as grants like the Pell Grant, are available even to students who are not taking classes full-time. In addition, students in need may qualify for low-interest loans to make the process of attending college possible.

In the late 2000s, new dorms were constructed, making it possible for more students to live on campus. Some students will come from out-of-state and even from international destinations. Student life is enhanced by this diverse student body and mix of age groups and cultures.

Student groups include the Baptist Student Union, the theatre group, the Latino Union, the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, the Solar Vehicle Club, the Student Government and Roughrider Dancers, among others.

The Brown Complex is the main residence center for students living on campus. Applications for housing should be included soon after the main application is sent. Students can enjoy the nearby YMCA no matter where they are living during their enrollment.

Student Enrollment Demographics


The college has an impressive array of opportunities for student athletes. The Roughriders baseball team, part of the NJCAA, is constantly sending players off to scholarship programs at universities. Many players have made it to the major leagues.

In addition, there is a Roughriders Soccer team, as well as women’s basketball and softball, known as the Lady Riders. For the softball team, scholarships are offered to exceptional players who also demonstrate financial need. For cheerleaders, there is a Coed Spirit Squad which shows up for all Lady Riders basketball games at home besides competing in the National Collegiate Competitions.


The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education and the Coordinating Board for Higher Education have accredited Crowder to award associate’s degrees. The Higher Learning Committee of the North Central Association also grants accreditation. The Missouri State Board of Nursing has accredited the Nursing Program.
