Florida Tech Named a Top School for Military Servicemembers, Veterans

Florida Institute of Technology has again been honored for its support of military servicemembers, veterans and their families, as a top school in Military Advanced Education’s 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities.

The annual ranking evaluated more than 600 private and public institutions on how effectively they serve veterans and military students across six categories: Military Culture; On-Campus Support; Financial Assistance; Online Support; Flexibility; and General Support.

Florida Tech, which has consistently been recognized as a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, provides an array of benefits to military students and their families, including:

  • Special military tuition rate of $250 per credit hour for active-duty servicemembers, selected Reserves, National Guard servicemembers and their spouses
  • 10% savings on undergraduate tuition rates for veterans and their spouses, as well as dependents of deceased or disabled veterans
  • 10% savings on graduate tuition rates for active duty, selected Reserves, National Guard, veterans and their spouses, as well as dependents of deceased or disabled veterans

In addition, military personnel can exit and re-enter Florida Tech’s 100% online programs without penalty during temporary duty assignments.

The Melbourne, Florida-based university, which has been teaching on bases since the 1960s and has graduated 32 military generals, is certified for the GI Bill®, participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and recently was ranked among the nation’s Best Colleges for Veterans by U.S. News & World Report.

“We take immense pride in providing exemplary services and support to those who have sacrificed so much for our nation,” said Tonya Parker, VA and Military Affairs Coordinator at Florida Tech, which also has been named as “military-friendly” by G.I. Jobs. “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized for those efforts in Military Advanced Education’s 2015 Guide.”

Over 40 associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degree programs are available 100% online to military students and veterans at Florida Tech, including Aviation Management, Criminal Justice and Homeland Security, Supply Chain Management and Information Technology/Cybersecurity. Students can also choose from numerous MBA specializations.

Powered by Bisk Education, the online programs feature downloadable professor-led video lectures that can be accessed anytime, anywhere via desktop, laptop or mobile device.

Prospective students, education services officers and transition officers can use Military Advanced Education’s guide “to evaluate institutions on their best practices in military and veteran education,” the magazine’s editor, Kelly G. Fodel, said in a statement.
