  • The Undergraduate reimbursement rate is up to 100% of the undergraduate rate of the University of Minnesota -- Twin Cities Campus with a maximum yearly benefit of $18,000 per fiscal year (01 JULY through 30 JUNE).
  • The Graduate reimbursement rate is up to 50% of the graduate rate of the University of Minnesota -- Twin Cities Campus with a maximum yearly benefit of $20,000 per fiscal year (01 JULY through 30 JUNE).

To apply for State Tuition Reimbursement you MUST contact your unit full-time representative to obligate funds as soon as you know you will be going to school. Like FTA, STR requires a “C” or better to qualify for reimbursement. Army National Guard Enlisted Soldiers must apply for Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) in order to be eligible to apply for State Tuition Reimbursement. You can pick up the STR paperwork in the Veterans Resource Center.

To apply, please contact your Unit Administrator.
