National Guard Tuition Assistance

Before moving forward, it is critical that you have received approval from an Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor within your respective service, prior to enrolling in courses.

Federal tuition assistance (FTA) may be available to you as a member of the Army or Air National Guard. FTA can be a huge help in driving down the cost of your education, but also be sure to ask your state education office or education counselor on your installation for other benefits and programs they provide National Guard students. Some states, including New Jersey, offer full in-state tuition.

Army National Guard students can identify eligibility and request federal tuition assistance through ArmyIgnitED.

Air National Guard students can identify eligibility and benefits available by state on the Air National Guard benefits website
