Indiana Tech becomes a preferred education partner of the Michigan State Police

March 26, 2019

Indiana Tech and the Michigan State Police have joined together to make Indiana Tech a preferred education partner of the Michigan State Police.

As the primary tenet of the agreement, Indiana Tech will provide corporate scholarships to current and former Michigan State Police troopers, current and former MSP staff members and all spouses who wish to take undergraduate and graduate classes through the university’s College of Professional Studies.

“Indiana Tech is pleased to partner with the Michigan State Police to benefit the men and women who work so hard to protect and serve the state of Michigan,” said Dr. Karl Einolf, president at Indiana Tech. “Our degree offerings are well-suited to helping them advance in their careers, and to continue serving Michigan with the highest levels of professionalism, innovation and effectiveness. Everyone at our university looks forward to helping them pursue their educational goals and reach their greatest potential.”

“The Michigan State Police is committed to advancing efforts to facilitate and support our employee’s career goals and development,” said Col. Joseph Gasper, director of the Michigan State Police. “In keeping with this philosophy, we are pleased to announce this partnership with Indiana Tech that offers our members another opportunity to pursue continuing education.”

Eligible participants will receive a scholarship to help make tuition even more affordable while pursuing their degree. In addition, current or retired troopers who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice will receive credit for their academy training, making the path toward their degree shorter. Finally, textbook rental is included in the cost of tuition and books are shipped to students’ homes prior to the start of class.

Indiana Tech has been helping students achieve their educational goals for more than 85 years. Now, even more students are able to achieve through the flexibility and convenience provided by Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies. With up to nine class sessions each year, CPS courses are always starting soon. There are nearly 40 online degree options, with 24-hour access to online classwork. Online students enjoy the support of a dedicated academic advisor, as well as a personal student success advisor who is there to offer support and resources every step of the way. This format helps busy working adults make quick progress and build momentum toward the completion of their degree.
