Message From the Education Staff Team

The decision to pursue a college education is a huge step. The path of higher education can lead to expanded opportunities, in the National Guard and your civilian career.

As your Education Center Staff, we encourage you to take advantage of the Guard's education programs. Make a goal and take the first step toward personal satisfaction and self improvement.

Education Files

A soldier's official civilian education file is kept with the soldier's 201 file at the Personnel Services Branch in HQ STARC. It is the soldier's responsibility to keep this file current. When a soldier leaves the NJ Guard, their file is transferred along with their personnel file.


Under the provisions of the Veterans Administration Education Programs, soldiers eligible for Montgomery GI Bill benefits may also qualify to participate in the Veterans Administration Work Study Program.  Under this program soldiers that are attending college on at least a three-quarter time basis are eligible for employment by the VA.  Participants may work a maximum of 25 hours per week and receive federal minimum wage--tax free.

The NJARNG Education Center sponsors a  number of positions for this program.  Personnel participating in this program work at the Education Center or other locations coordinated by the Full-Time Education Staff.  For information on available positions contact the NJARNG Education Center.
