Guard Tuition Incentive Program (GTIP)

The Guard Tuition Incentive Program (GTIP) is a state funded award to assist soldiers with their educational expenses. Applications can be obtained at the units or through the Education Office. You can find information about Guard Tuition Incentive Program (GTIP) at the Arkansas National Guard Education website.

GTIP approval process:

  1. If approved for GTIP assistance, the Arkansas National Guard will submit the eligible students to the AR Department of Higher Education (ADHE). ADHE will compile the names and send to UALR on a roster.
  2. New Policy – AR National Guard will not pay GTIP funds for less than full-time (12 college credit hours).
  3. Your official enrollment will be reported to the Arkansas Department of Higher Education as of UALR’s 11th class day of the spring semester. You will need to be enrolled full-time on the 11th class day to receive these funds.
  4. You also need to complete an Arkansas Consent form before funds will post to your account.
