MFS22 23 Bronze - Veterans
We are honored you are thinking about joining the TSTC community. Every year TSTC is awarded the Military Friendly School designation, so we know how to work with veterans.

Ask any of our veteran alumni about our ability to make your transition from the military a seamless one.

Applying is easy—and free. And we accept all veteran education benefits.

If you are a service member, reservist, or National Guard we recommend that you contact your Educational Service Officer (ESO) or counselor within your branch of service prior to enrolling at TSTC.

When you are ready to enroll, contact the TSTC Veterans office.

Get ready for the performance of your career.

Performance-Based Education, or PBE, is the name of TSTC’s course-based Competency-Based Education (CBE) initiative. This modality will help you to focus on mastery of specified industry skills or competencies. It is often self-directed and is conducted either fully online or in a blended learning environment that flips traditional lecture to online and places the emphasis on hands-on learning in a technical lab environment.
