I've been interested in joining an academy in the past but had changed my mind to potentially joining the national guard. From that experience, I know this is a great forum for help and I couldn't find any other good forums for asking questions. If anybody can, can someone tell me the success rate of gaining out of state tuition through the air national guard? I want to attend an out of state university in Colorado and I've see that 6 months is the amount of time to be able to receive benefits supposedly. Is this true that 6 months after completing training that I WILL be granted the education benefits as well as instate tuition? I had contacted my college and was told that they will readily accept me as instate due to the national guard. But is there anything else that can make this all a tossup, leaving my with such a giant out of state tuition cost to pay?
