Tuition Assistance

The Wyoming National Guard and UW Army ROTC have a great working relationship.  Cadets are offered the opportunity to participate in the Simultaneous Membership Program (SMP). This program allows cadets to shadow a Lieutenant at monthly drill and two week annual training periods. ROTC events always take priority when training dates conflict and about 30% of our Cadets are in the SMP program. 

SMP service does NOT limit Cadets to future service in the Wyoming National Guard. Cadets are discharged from Wyoming National Guard service the day before commissioning and are therefore eligible to commission into any of the three Army components (Active duty, National Guard (any state) and the Army Reserves).

 

Service in The WYNG offers several benefits for simultaneous Guard/ROTC members:

  1. 100% tuition assistance
  2. $300 monthly drill pay
  3. $375 monthly GI Bill (must complete basic and individual training first)
  4. $350 monthly GI Bill kicker (must score at least a 50 on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)
  5. Initial pay after commissioning is higher due to accumulated years of service
  6. Opportunity for Army leadership experience by shadowing a National Guard Lieutenant.

 

 Current SMP Cadets use this link to file your semester TUITION ASSISTANCE FORM.

 

Additional Tuition Assistance through ROTC and Cadet Command:

  1. Contracted Cadets receive a $450 monthly stipend
  2. All Cadets can earn Room and Board money ranging from $232 - $928 per semester based on their cadet rank
  3. All Cadets can earn a semester bonus of up to $500 for making an academic honor roll, scoring at least a 280 on their APFT, and perfect attendance for the semester.
  4. All Cadets on a special team receive $256 per semester.
