Southwestern College recognizes the sacrifices members of the National Guard and Reserves have made for our country. Our dedicated military department is here to assist you with accomplishing your academic and career goals.
Did you know that the National Guard has several programs for its members to pay for college? In addition to your GI Bill®, qualifying guardsmen may also be eligible for up to 100% Tuition Assistance and scholarships. Southwestern College is also a Corporate Education Partner with the Kansas National Guard Association.
The Two-step Process to Receive Tuition Assistance for Your College Education as a National Guard and Reserve Member
1. Apply and learn more about your benefits by visiting your State’s Education Service Officer. (NG/Reservist will need to visit the ESO of each respective State for TA benefits).
2. Fill out and submit the Southwestern College Application
All service members eligible must coordinate with education advisors, ESOs or counselor within their military service PRIOR to enrolling to obtain approval for TA.
