    When a National Guard Reservist goes to college, what is the limit on the amount of tuition the Guard pays?

    If you are talking about SMP then - yep - in many cases. This depends on the state and the payment is generally for in-state tuition.
    If you are talking about an enlisted NG soldier going to college - I know there is money for education. How much depends on the state, the commitment and time served.

    mwbluebeard,

    In response to your question; it depends on the state and college. Here in Massachusetts, students get "free tuition" to any public college (like my college) if they join the Guard.

    I recommend that you check with each individual college to see what their policies are.

    I also very much encourage you to understand that the Guard pays TUITION. I have had several families over the years think that the Guard was paying for their full educational costs.

    I am a strong supporter of the Guard - however, it is very important that a student check out all of the pros/cons before signing a Guard contract.

    Feel free to contact me if you have questions.
