Lakeshore Technical College Earns 13th Consecutive Military Friendly® School Designation




For the 13th consecutive year, Lakeshore Technical College earned the Military Friendly® School designation. Institutions earning the designation were evaluated using public data sources and responses from a proprietary survey. Of over 1,800 schools that participated in the 2022-2023 survey, 665 earned special awards for going above the standard. LTC earned a silver award, which indicates leading practices, outcomes, and effective programs for veterans transitioning from military careers to school and satisfying careers as civilians.

“This recognition shows our commitment to welcoming veterans and supporting them in meaningful ways throughout their educational journeys with us,” said LTC President Dr. Paul Carlsen, “We consider it a privilege to have veterans learning within our student community and we are honored to receive this designation.” 

LTC 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. LTC also processes state level Retraining Grant Applications for veterans who are dislocated workers, National Guard Tuition Grant Applications, and VetEd Reimbursement Grants. Those eligible for the Federal GI Bill can benefit from tuition assistance, housing allowance, and additional stipends to cover education costs.

Registration for new and returning veterans begins April 4 for summer and fall terms. Alumni, returning, and new program students can begin registering April 5. Registration will be open to everyone on April 14.
