Lawrence Tech earned the 2020-21 Military Friendly School designation from Viqtory, publisher of several military-focused magazines and websites. This is the latest in many veteran-focused accolades. One key reason for the recognition is that Lawrence Tech offers a 15 percent tuition discount to all active military, inactive, reserve, or retired military. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has also designated Lawrence Tech as a “Yellow Ribbon School” for providing up to $5,500 per year in aid to qualified veterans.
“Lawrence Tech offers a special welcome and continuing services for all those who have served our nation in the armed forces, who defend America’s freedom and are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice,” said Virinder Moudgil, LTU president.
Institutions earning the Military Friendly School designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Final ratings were determined by combining survey scores with LTU’s achievements in student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence in degree advancement or transfer, and loan default rates, both for all students and for student veterans.
Methodology, criteria, and weightings were determined by Viqtory, with input from the Military Friendly Advisory Council of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment communities.
