National Guard State College Tuition Assistance


ANG/ARNG State Tuition Assistanceline

Many state legislatures have funded state tuition assistance to aid National Guard members in pursuing their educational goals. Offered only to members of the National Guard in specific states, this assistance is in recognition of their roles as state employees and in appreciation for their defense of the state and its residents.

Eligibility for State College Tuition Assistance

Eligibility requirements for state-funded programs vary from state to state. Also, the different states and territories offer Guard members varying educational incentives. Keep in mind:

  • State and federal tuition assistance may be used simultaneously, but can’t exceed the full tuition amount.
  • State assistance may be used in conjunction with MGIB benefits, but the two forms of funding may not exceed 100% of your tuition costs.
  • More than 30 states offer up to 100% assistance.
