Many high school graduates are considering enlistment in the military as a pathway to earning a post-secondary degree debt-free. Learn how.

So you are considering your options for the future and thinking about the military. Joining the military is unlike any other option, because there are benefits you won’t find anywhere else. An important step is understanding the many tangible and intangible benefits of joining the military:

  • A guaranteed paycheck and cash bonuses
  • Advanced and specialty training
  • 30 days of annual paid vacation
  • Travel
  • Option for full-time or part-time service
  • Tax-free room, board and allowances
  • Health and dental care
  • Use of commissary and military exchange stores
  • Special home loans and discounts
  • Unparalleled sense of patriotism, duty, honor and selfless service
  • Highly sought-after skills, leadership and training experience
  • Education benefits (College Tuition and Repayment of College Loans)

College Tuition and Repayment of College Loans

Going into the military right out of high school does not deprive you of a college education. The military can help pay for college or pay off college loans. Most enlistees are eligible for up to 100% of college tuition through the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) while on active duty. Armed Forces education benefit programs include the GI Bill; Army, Navy and Marine College Funds; college loan repayment (including student loan forgiveness) and student loan deferment and forbearance.
