To qualify, you need either an associate degree or an equal amount of college credit that you can apply toward the degree. In other words, you need to have a minimum of half of your credits toward a degree completed.
For a master's degree:
For a maximum of 24 months, the program will pay tuition, books and related fees up to $20,000 per year. The most you are allotted over two years is $40,000.
Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited post-secondary institution.
Servicemembers participating in the program are obligated to serve for a certain amount of time after they complete their degree program. The time will be served concurrently with any other service time that you incur. You must agree to remain on active duty for either:
A minimum of two years
A period equal to three times the number of months it took to complete your education, up to a maximum of three years.
Whichever is greater.
If you took nine months to complete your degree, you would have to serve three times that amount in the service, or 27 months, which would also fulfill the two year minimum.
