Southfield, Mich. - Lawrence Technological University will begin offering tuition discounts for five popular degree programs to new students who are veterans or currently serving in the military. Admissions applications are now being accepted for the spring term that begins Jan. 12, 2009.
The tuition discounts range from 14 to 25 percent for current and past members of the military who also meet the necessary academic requirements in the following degree programs:
Bachelor of science in electrical engineering
Students can choose between day and evening course schedules, and some of the programs can be taken entirely online. Admissions counselors will review academic transcripts and military service credentials, and assess each veteran's eligibility during a personal interview.
Lisa Kujawa, assistant provost for enrollment services at Lawrence Tech, said the university is providing an extra incentive for veterans who want to continue their education after doing their part to protect the freedoms everyone enjoys in American society.
"We want this to be a great opportunity for veterans to increase their skills and broaden their employment opportunities," Kujawa said.
Since its founding in 1932, Lawrence Tech has provided adult, part-time students with opportunities to improve their earning potential in degree programs that incorporate the educational philosophy of leadership through theory and practice. This was especially true after World War II when thousands of veterans took advantage of the GI Bill of Rights to attend Lawrence Tech.
