Military/Veterans

Military Students

Northwest Tech proudly supports students who have served the United States through military service! We are committed to helping military and veteran students take their first step into an exciting new civilian career.

Silver Level Military Friendly College

We are proud to have been designated as a Silver-Level Military Friendly College by Victory Media. This means our policies and procedures are created to help ease the transition for students from military life to civilian higher education. We value the experience and maturity military students bring to campus and to the classroom. You can read more about the award here.

Athletes of Valor

Northwest Kansas Technical College has formed a partnership with Athletes of Valor, an organization dedicated to helping service members transition into college after service and compete in college athletics. Northwest Tech is the first technical or community college in the nation to form a partnership and currently the only college in Kansas. Read more about the partnership here.
