Indiana Tech in Fort Wayne has signed an agreement to become the preferred education partner of the Indiana State Police. Under terms of the deal, Indiana Tech will provide corporate scholarships to current and former ISP troopers, staff members and spouses who want to take classes through the university’s College of Professional Studies.

Indiana Tech says additionally, current or retired troopers who pursue a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice will receive credit for their academy training. Textbook rental will also be included in the cost of tuition and Indiana Tech will ship the books to students prior to the start of classes.

"Indiana Tech is pleased to partner with the Indiana State Police to benefit the men and women who work so hard to protect and serve our state," said Indiana Tech President Karl Einolf. "Our degree offerings are well-suited to helping them advance in their careers, and to continue serving our state with the highest levels of professionalism, innovation and effectiveness."

The courses involved in the College of Professional Studies are held once per week for five or six weeks and are available online or in person at one of Indiana Tech’s 18 regional campuses. You can learn more about the partnership with ISP by clicking here.
