NDMU Partners with Maryland Army National Guard to Make College Degrees More Accessible

Notre Dame of Maryland University announces a new partnership with the Maryland Army National Guard, making higher education more accessible to those who serve.

Notre Dame of Maryland University (NDMU) and the Maryland Army National Guard (MD ANG) have announced a new partnership making higher education more accessible to those serving in the MD ANG. 

Maj. Gen. Linda L. Singh, Adjutant General for Maryland, and Dr. Marylou Yam, President of NDMU, signed a memorandum of understanding to formally launch the beginning of the education partnership.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the Maryland Army National Guard to increase access and options for the Guard men and women who serve our State,” said Dr. Yam. “Engaging in service to others is a fundamental component of both the Guard’s and NDMU Mission and we look forward to welcoming the MD ANG as members of our campus community.”

Beginning this Fall 2019 semester, MD ANG service members will be eligible to pursue their undergraduate or graduate degree at NDMU for little to no cost through a combination of the MD ANG’s education benefits and a 50% tuition waiver for undergraduate courses and 25% for graduate courses through NDMU.

“The furtherance of education by the members of the Maryland Guard opens many doors to advancement, not just in their military endeavors, but in their personal lives,” said Maj. Gen. Singh. “It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.”  

In her long and distinguished career, Gen. Singh has earned two Masters Degrees and has recently completed her doctoral dissertation.
