The Alabama National Guard Education Assistance Program (ANGEAP) is for tuition and educational fees for Alabama National Guard members to attend a postsecondary educational institution in Alabama. The award is based on financial need. Completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is required. This award is for students who are active members in good standing with a federally-recognized unit of the Alabama National Guard. Participants also may receive federal veterans benefits, but must show a cost less aid amount of at least $100. Forms must be signed by a representative of the Alabama Military Department and the financial aid officer at the college or university the student plans to attend.
Jefferson State does not treat ANGEAP as a promise to pay. If a student has a tuition and fee balance not covered by grants, scholarships or other VA benefits that makes them eligible for the ANGEAP program, they will need to cover the balance up front and will be reimbursed by ANGEAP at the end of the semester. Withdrawing from a course could also make a student ineligible to receive ANGEAP reimbursement for that course. Furthermore, ANGEAP is based on academic progress. To receive the benefits, a 2.0 or higher GPA is required.
