Im back.
 
Hey guys. So ive established that i want to go the Coast Guard. However i need to find a way to go to the Coast Guard for tuition while still being able to go to college AND the Coast Guard at the same time. Now theres the option of going to do part time but theyll only pay 4,500 of tuition a year. Unfortunately i need 16,000... So part time is out of the question. Any suggestions???

Yes they will pay up to 4500 a year for tuition if you need more after that then youll have to use your GI bill

Check out American Public University and University of MD University College. Both are extremely military friendly. Also don't forget Pell Grant. You can still get it while active duty. Hope this helps.

Have you looked into the Coast Guard or Naval Academy? If you have the grades, are physically fit, there is a possibility. Also check with your state senator and congressman.

I'm currently going to school with some folks who are managing to have the Army NG pay for their schooling with almost no obligation from them. Several of them are able to avoid deployments, drill obligations, and in one case, even boot camp.

One of them explained to me that she is spending her entire 4 year contact in school, and if she's lucky she'll never even have to put on the uniform.

I told her what I think of that, and I wasn't too nice about it either.

There's nothing wrong with getting help from the military on paying for schooling, I have the issue with some of them just taking advantage of it and not even intending to give any service in return.

I'm not trying to imply that you would do such a thing, I'm just pointing out that yes, it can be done as you describe. But some people take it to extremes.
