About: Minnesota State Tuition Reimbursement (STR) will pay for 100% of your tuition (not including student fees) up to the undergraduate rate at the University of Minnesota for 144 semester credits with a maximum yearly benefit of $12,000 per fiscal year (01 JUL through 30 JUN). This benefit is available to current members of the Minnesota Army and Air National Guard and may be used in conjunction with the GI Bill and Federal Tuition Assistance (again, FTA and STR can be combined but only to equal 100% of tuition). This benefit is paid to the military member after a final grade is received for the course. Submission of required materials, including tuition fee statement and semester grade report, goes through the designated unit official.
Eligibility: Minnesota National Guard members in the rank of E1 to O5, including Warrant Officers. State Tuition Reimbursement has been extended to:
- Service members who have satisfactorily completed their service contract in the Minnesota National Guard who served honorably in federal active service or federally funded state active service since September 11, 2001. Eligibility is extended for a period of two years, plus the amount of time equal to the duration of that person's active service.
- State Tuition Reimbursement has been extended to Service members who have been separated or discharged from that organization due to a service-connected injury, disease, or disability. Eligibility period is extended for eight years beyond the date of separation.
