    Hi everyone! I understand that the scholarship's commitment for Active Duty is 4 years and the non-scholarship's commitment is 3 years.

    What if you go National Guard though? Is there a different commitment level there also? Also, If you do go National Guard, do you get the GI Bill to get your Master's Degree with?

    Thank you for all of your answers.

    I think the Service Obligation is 8 years, as follows:

    Scholarship: 4 years AD minimum, with the balance in Reserves
    Non-Scholarship: 3 years AD minimum, with the balance in Reserves

    Dedicated NG scholarships are eight years, with last two being served in the IRR if you want.

    All contracts are 8 years, regardless. Where you see the 4 or 3 year committment is regarding active service. The other remaining years can be spent in the IRR. Then you can do things like ADSO or go to Grad School/Med School/Law School, which all add time to your service obligation.
