Can I Reenlist and Get the Student Loan Repayment Program?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: I enlisted in the Army in 2008 for four years and I got the GI Bill. Can I reenlist now can I get the SLRP?

A: In the Army, no. The Student Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) is an enlistment incentive option, and not a reenlistment option, so it is offered only at the first enlistment. Because you opted for the Montgomery GI Bill, you didn’t get SLRP as you can’t have both for the same enlistment period.

However, both the Army Reserve and National Guard have a prior service SLRP that pays up to $20,000. Once you are finished with your Army commitment, you might look at joining one of the Reserve Components for three years to take advantage of their SLRP.
