Oregon National Guard State Tuition Assistance

The Oregon National Guard State Tuition Assistance (ONGSTA) program provides funding toward undergraduate tuition, certain fees, and a book allowance, at eligible Oregon postsecondary institutions for current Oregon National Guard Members. The grant can be used up to 90 credits at an Oregon community college and up to 180 quarter credits/120 semester credits at eligible Oregon universities and colleges. Award amounts vary depending on the type of institution the student attends and their eligibility for other military tuition assistance. 

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Summer Deadline 2023

Due to unforeseen technical problems with the ONGSTA application, the summer 2023 deadline has been moved to the first day of the summer term for your school. If you are experiencing problems with access to the application, please contact Bob Small at ONGSTA@hecc.oregon.gov as soon as possible.
