  • Financial Incentives and Service Obligations

    This is a quick summary of educational benefits with associated service obligations.


    Program: Federal TA
    Requires: 12 months service after completing Advanced Individual Training (AIT).
    Obligation: Traditional E: no additional obligation; Traditional O/W: four years* drilling with ARNG; AGR E/O/W: two year* active duty obligation

    Program: State TA
    Requires: varies by State (usually Basic Training)
    Obligation: varies, but likely a State-specific obligation of two years*

    Program: MGIB (1606)
    Requires: Basic/AIT --or-- BOLC I-III
    Obligation: six-year contract

    Program: MGIB Kicker
    Requires: must be drawing GI Bill (any chapter)
    Obligation: two years* to ARNG

    Program: ARNG ROTC Scholarship (or GRFD scholarship)
    Requires: ARNG enlistment + ROTC contract
    Obligation: drill during duration of scholarship; PLUS eight years drilling after commissioning

    * the two-year clock starts the day after the last semester for which one draws that benefit; thus, if you draw TA for umpteen years, the two-year clock starts after the end of the final TA-funded semester

    Common situation: ROTC cadet wants to participate in SMP for training, but wants to serve on active duty after commissioning. This cadet should not draw State TA, GI Bill Kicker, or the ARNG (or GRFD) ROTC Scholarship, lest he obligate himself in a way that he doesn't want to fulfill.

    Some states such as NJ you will get the State Tuition waiver, its non obligatory as you are eligible as long as you are in the guard.

    This would allow you to be in the guard and take the active duty ROTC contract.
