Maryland National Guard State Tuition Waiver

The Maryland National Guard State Tuition Waiver is applicable only when taking credit, undergraduate, or graduate courses. Each institution has its own rules that govern the number of seats available and the number of credit hours eligible for a tuition waiver.

All classes are held at Maryland National Guard locations and are available to all Guard members with a 25% or 50% tuition waiver, regardless of space available. Professional courses are not eligible for STW. *Can now be used for Trade Schools in partnership with the Maryland Army National Guard.
