    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.

    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.

    They might, all you can do is ask, and the worst they can do is say no.

    I have no problem with getting them to pay for college before you go into the service, it's just the people that do what I was talking about are no better than folks who take advantage of a girl when she's passed out drunk. And at the same time, education benefits are being cut to save money, while some of these people are using it up and others are losing it who have actually earned it.

    Get them to pay for college first if you can. I believe your one who will pay them back with your blood, sweat and tears.

    Also, I think if you go into the reserves, you can do boot camp and then go to college while doing your contract.
