Lawrence Technological University has earned the 2017 Military Friendly School designation by Victory Media, publisher of the magazines and websites G.I. Jobs®, STEM Jobs, and Military Spouse.
First published in 2009, the list of Military Friendly Schools is provided to service members and their families, helping them select the best college, university, or trade school to receive the education and training needed to pursue a civilian career.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from Victory Media’s proprietary survey. More than 1,600 schools participated in the 2017 survey. A Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in higher education and military recruitment assisted in the selections. Criteria include student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence (degree advancement or transfer) and loan default rates.

Lawrence Tech offers a 15 percent tuition discount to all active military, inactive, reserve or retired military. Also, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has designated Lawrence Tech as a “Yellow Ribbon School” for providing up to $5,500 per year in aid to qualified veterans.
Lawrence Tech will be showcased along with other 2017 Military Friendly Schools in the annual Guide to Military Friendly Schools, special education issues of G.I. Jobs and Military Spouse Magazine, and on militaryfriendly.com.
About Military Friendly Schools:
The Military Friendly Schools list is created each year based on extensive research using public data sources for more than 8,800 schools nationwide, input from student veterans, and responses to the proprietary, data-driven Military Friendly Schools survey from participating institutions. The survey questions, methodology, criteria and weightings were developed by Victory Media with the assistance
of an independent research firm and an advisory council of educators and employers. Data calculations and tabulations were independently evaluated for completeness and accuracy by EY. The survey is administered for free and is open to all post-secondary schools that wish to participate. Criteria for consideration can be found at: https://militaryfriendly.com
