Indiana Tech earns Military Friendly Gold Designation

April 22, 2024

For the 13th consecutive year, Indiana Tech has been named a Military Friendly® School by Viqtory, a service-disabled, veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) that connects the military community to civilian employment, educational and entrepreneurial opportunities. Military Friendly® is the standard that measures an organization’s commitment, effort and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the military community.

In addition to Military Friendly® status, Indiana Tech was also recognized as a Top 10-Gold Level institution among graduate programs, placing third among the top ten schools in this category. According to Viqtory, a Top 10-Gold Level designation indicates Indiana Tech is a “guidon bearer to military/veteran programs and initiatives,” and sets standards for other institutions to follow.

“Receiving this award for the last 13 years shows the dedication that Indiana Tech has to our military and veteran students. I have the honor of leading a team of professionals who work diligently to make Indiana Tech the best possible choice for military-connected students. Being among the top 10 graduate programs for several years now is great, and making it into third place this year is even better,” said Ryan Ozbun, associate vice president of Military & Veteran Services at Indiana Tech. “In addition to continually striving for first place, we have a lot of great opportunities coming our way this year. Everything this team does is to benefit our military students, and we will continue to seek new and better ways to serve them.”

Methodology, criteria and weightings for this designation are determined by Viqtory with input from the Military Friendly® Advisory Council, made up of independent leaders in the higher education and military recruitment community. Viqtory measures each institution’s ability to meet thresholds for student retention, graduation, job placement, loan repayment, persistence and loan default rates for all students and, specifically, for student veterans.

Indiana Tech’s Military & Veteran Services team extends its support to military service members, veterans and military spouses, as well as civilian Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Homeland Security employees.
