About: The plan pays 100% of the tuition and mandatory fees at an approved technical school, Wyoming Junior colleges and at the University of Wyoming or approved technical institution. The program will pay for one degree for all eligible members. In-state tuition rates are offered to all active members of the Wyoming National Guard. Guard members can use the state educational assistance to complete one degree or certificate program. This includes: Certificates, Associate, Bachelors, Masters, or PhD program. The combination of Certificate, Associate to Bachelor counts as one degree. Members can use the MGIB and kicker if qualified with the 100% State Educational Assistance Plan.
Eligibility: Members must have served or are serving on a six-year contract with the Wyoming National Guard. Must have completed basic training or officer training; meet participation standards; and be in good standing with the Guard. Members must maintain a cumulative 2.0 GPA in school and agree to serve two years with the Wyoming Guard after completion of school. Members have ten years to complete their degree or educational objective. The ten years start the first time members enroll in the plan. Failure to maintain satisfactory participation in the educational program or failure to complete the initial six-year commitment, or the two-year additional service, obligates a member to repay all educational assistance received. An application packet must be completed for each term enrolled.
