National Guard Partnership

Butler Community College partners with the Kansas Army National Guard to help students not only pay for college, but to gain knowledge, respect, and leadership. Students can serve the citizens of Kansas and receive valuable training while simultaneously pursuing their degrees.  The Kansas National Guard offers several ways for students to pay for their college education so that students can graduate from college with little or no school debt.  You will receive pay or compensation for every day you serve, and this includes all time spent in training.  In other words, the Guard will pay for you to learn valuable job skills that translate to the civilian work force… all while you earn your college degree.  Below are numerous options to gain knowledge, receive hands-on training in your desired field, and a degree without worrying about the costs.
