Those two campuses that merged are now referred to as the Coffeyville Technical Campus and the Columbus Technical Campus. The Coffeyville Technical Campus is located directly west of Field Kindley High School. The Columbus Technical Campus is about 50 miles east-northeast of Coffeyville in Columbus, Kan., directly east of the Columbus High School.

The College has a head count of approximately 3,000 students each academic year. Approximately 53% of these students reside in Montgomery County.
The College offers numerous activity and athletic scholarships. The College also offers endowed scholarships, Presidential Scholarships for academically advanced students, Technical Scholarships for those attending the two technical campuses, and Gold Card Scholarships for community members over the age of 55 who desire to take interest classes tuition free.
The College also participates in student aid programs directed by the U.S. Department of Education including Pell Grants, loans and work study.
The College is guided by a six member Board of Trustees. The trustees serve four-year terms with public elections for half of the Board every two years. The Board sets College policy and determines the local property tax mill levy.
