Beginning immediately, active-duty members of America’s military and military veterans will not be charged an application fee at Northwest Technical College.
“Northwest Technical College is extremely honored to serve America’s military and our veterans,” Mike Heitkamp, associate vice president for admissions and enrollment for Northwest Tech and Bemidji State University, said. “This is just one way to thank them for their service and support them as they prepare for new opportunities.”
Northwest Technical College has been included in Victory Media’s Military Friendly Schools list, which honors the top 20 percent of America’s colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military veterans as students, for each of the last five years.
Criteria for making the Military Friendly Schools list included efforts to recruit and retain military and veteran students, results in recruiting military and veteran students and academic accreditations.
Through a unique partnership with Bemidji State University, Northwest Tech students have the ability to access services made available to BSU students, including its Veteran’s Assistance Center. Among the other BSU services available through the partnership, NTC students also can join BSU’s student veteran’s club.
