Recruiting Service Members

As required by the Department of Defense and to eliminate unfair, deceptive, and abusive marketing aimed at Service members, Wake Tech will

  1. Ban inducements, including any gratuity, favor, discount, entertainment, hospitality, loan, transportation, lodging, meals, or other item having a monetary value of more than a de minimis [defined as "an insignificant amount"] to any individual or entity, or its agents including third-party lead generators or marketing firms other than salaries paid to employees or fees paid to contractors in conformity with all applicable laws for the purpose of securing enrollments of Service members or obtaining access to TA funds. Educational institution sponsored scholarships or grants and tuition reductions available to military students are permissible;
  2. Refrain from providing any commission, bonus, or other incentive payment based directly or indirectly on securing enrollments or federal financial aid (including TA funds) to any persons or entities engaged in any student recruiting, admission activities, or making decisions regarding the award of student financial assistance;
  3. Refrain from high-pressure recruitment tactics such as making multiple unsolicited contacts (3 or more), including contacts by phone, email, or in-person, and engaging in same-day recruitment and registration for the purpose of securing Service member enrollments. 

The mission of the Military and Veteran Programs Division is to support and enhance the educational experience of our student veterans and eligible dependents by assisting with the transition into higher education to achieve their career goals. We are committed to providing our veterans with the highest quality of academic support services by assisting with veteran’s education benefits, facilitating the transition into college life, and providing support for their ongoing academic success.
