MELBOURNE, FLA. — Florida Tech has been recognized as a top school for military veterans in the 2021 Best for Vets: Colleges ranking from Military Times magazine.
The university offers a thriving ROTC program on its main campus and has a variety of degree programs fully online and at its Alabama, Florida, Maryland and Virginia education centers, which have long been a top choice for servicemembers.
Florida Tech counts 46 military generals among its alumni, including Ann Dunwoody, the first woman in U.S history to achieve a four-star officer rank.
In the annual Military Times report, more than 360 schools were ranked by filling out a 70-question survey about costs, programs, policies and services that impact military-connected students. Federal data from the U.S. departments of education, veterans affairs and defense, were also considered.
