Lakeshore Technical College Earns 12th Consecutive Military Friendly® School Designation




Lakeshore Technical College has earned the Military Friendly® School designation for the 12th consecutive year. Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using both public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Over 1,200 schools participated in the 2021-2022 survey with 747 earning the designation, which indicates leading practices, outcomes, and effective programs.

“We are incredibly proud to be recognized year after year as a college that offers a welcoming and supportive environment to our veterans. This designation tells our community the services and programs we have in place are helping veterans achieve meaningful educational outcomes,” said Lakeshore President Dr. Paul Carlsen.

Lakeshore works with County Veterans Services, Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Federal Veterans Administration to ensure veterans have access to resources that can support success. Through the Wisconsin GI Bill, veterans and their dependents can apply for tuition and material fee waivers. Lakeshore also processes state level Retraining Grant Applications for veterans who are dislocated workers, National Guard Tuition Grant Applications, and VetEd Reimbursement Grants. 

Registration for new and returning veterans begins April 5 for summer and fall terms. Other new and returning students can begin registering April 6.
