    My Uncle went through the Corps at Texas A&M. He didn't have to join up beforehand in any form or fashion and he didn't attend basic training. If I were you I'd go talk to the ROTC advisor at whatever University you are interested in and see what they say.

      The short answer is yes. That said the Guard offers several educational benefits that basically tie you to the Guard. So make sure you find out which ones have Guard service obligations attached to them so that you can go active duty once you are done with college.

      Federal Tuition assistance i believe is ok and so is GI Bill SR. GRFD and GI Bill Kicker have service obligations to the Guard.
