National Guard Tuition Assistance Eligibility


In order to be eligible for Tuition Assistance through the National Guard one must have provide a valid expense from an accredited school. They must be a part time member of the National Guard as well as be in active duty drilling status. This eligibility starts the moment a member joins the Nation Guard. After a course is completed and Tuition Assistance is received an officer must serve four additional years in the National Guard. Whereas, an enlisted man only needs to stay in the National guard for the duration of the course that they are taking. Anyone that is getting a scholarship from ROTC is ineligible to receive National Guard Tuition Assistance.

If an eligible member of the Armed Services can receive up to $250 per semester credit hour or $167 per quarter of a credit hour, this will cover any enrollment fees up to $500 as well. Unfortunately this does not cover books or other fees that are not necessary for enrollment in a course. There is also a yearly limit of $4500 for Tuition Assistance. This can also be used to get a High School diploma or for equivalent classes, but the yearly limit of $4,500 still applies to those courses as well. In addition to this there are many other programs out there. Federal grants and aid are a good idea for anyone that wants to continue, or start, attending college. Since the reserves have less of a budget than the other branches of the military being eligible for Tuition Assistance through them is decidedly more difficult.
