Capitol Tech Named to the 2020 Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly List by U.S. Veterans Magazine

Capitol Technology University was named one of the 2020 Best of the Best Top Veteran-Friendly Companies, Top Supplier Diversity Programs, Top Government & Law Enforcement Agencies, and Top Veteran-Friendly Schools by U.S. Veterans Magazine (USVM).

USVM polled “hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for this year’s Best of the Best evaluations” and released its early results of 201 institutions that “open up employment, business and supplier opportunities within the federal government and corporate America for veterans, transitioning service members, disabled veterans, spouses and veteran business owners.”  

Since at least 2015, Capitol Tech has consistently made USVM’s Best of the Best list.

Capitol Tech has a long history of military personnel and veterans in its academic and staff ranks. Capitol Tech was also named a 2020-2021 Military Friendly® School and in honor of the veterans in our community the university is offering a new tuition discount program to support retired military personnel in addition to our longstanding active duty tuition discounts. The program provides a tuition discount of $100 per credit hour off undergraduate and masters programs and a $50 per credit hour discount off doctoral programs. 

Founded in 1927 by retired Navy radioman Eugene H. Rietzke, Capitol Tech has not only recognized the importance of providing opportunities for active duty and retired military members, but it has also taken action to make these opportunities available.

Capitol Technology University is honored to be a participating institution in the Yellow Ribbon GI Educational Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program). The university is also  partnered with the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) through Capitol Tech’s participation in the CCAF’s Air University Associate to Baccalaureate Co-operative (AU-ABC) program which provides pathways to a bachelor of science in cyber and information security degree for airmen enrolled in the CCAF. Having earned an associate’s degree through the CCAF, they can then transfer credits to an accredited civilian college or university that offers bachelor’s degree programs online.

Capitol Tech also accepts credit for military training based on the American Council on Education (ACE) guide, as it appears on your joint services transcript. We accept CLEP and DANTES exams, as well as credits from accredited colleges and universities. You may transfer up to 70 credits into a BS program from any combination of military training, community colleges and technical schools, from non-traditional learning. You may transfer additional credit from a four-year university, up to a total of 90 credits for a BS degree program.
