State Education Benefits
Iowa National Guard Tuition Aid Program:
Program provides $2,700 per semester for full-time students, which equals full-time tuition at Iowa’s public universities, and $196 per credit hour for part-time students. In addition, state schools will refund tuition to mobilized soldiers. Private school attendees get 50 percent tuition assistance, not to exceed the Regents University tuition rate.
Eligibility: Present Iowa National Guard members in good standing.
