Posted: Friday, August 10, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- For the second consecutive year, eligible members of the Alaska Army and Air National Guard can get University of Alaska tuition waivers, the state Department of Military and Veterans Affairs announced Thursday.

The tuition waiver program is being funded by $250,000 approved by the Legislature for fiscal year 2002. It's first come, first served. The program will end when the money runs out.

To qualify, Guard members must maintain grades of ''C'' or higher for all courses covered. To continue receiving funding, undergraduates must maintain a grade point average of at least 2.0 and graduate students an average of at least 3.0.

The program covers up to 12 undergraduate credit hours and nine graduate credit hours per semester.
