100% Tuition Waiver Program
The Massachusetts National Guard 100% Tuition Waiver Program, waives the cost of tuition for Massachusetts National Guard soldiers and airmen attending a Massachusetts State college, university, or community college program that is funded by the Mass. Board of Higher Education. Generally, these state-supported programs are offered during the day as part of a degree program. Continuing Education programs, traditionally offered in the evening hours, including intercession courses, offered between the Fall and Spring semesters, and Summer courses, are not normally covered by the 100% Tuition Waiver Program.
Eligibility for the 100% tuition reduction cannot exceed 130 semester hours or related quarter hours. The entitlement may be applied towards an associate, bachelor, masters, or doctoral program in addition to individual fulfillment courses, provided the courses/programs are state-supported.
Any actively participating soldier or airmen of the Massachusetts National Guard is entitled to a 100% reduction of tuition in any state-funded college program. The provisions of the law apply equally to full-time and part-time students enrolled in state funded college programs.
