If you have never applied for VA education benefits, you must first determine your eligibility for VA education benefits by contacting your nearest U.S. Veterans Assistance Center or VA regional office.
If you have previously used VA education benefits and remain eligible for additional assistance, benefits can be transferred from one institution to another. Requests for changes in place of training are routinely approved, whereas requests for changes in program involve several restrictions.
For all of these programs, service members must first complete VA Form 22-1990, Application for Education Benefits, and send to the nearest VA office.
There are numerous colleges and universities that are approved to accept Veterans Administrations (VA) benefits, and have a special interest in attracting departing military personnel. Many of the schools offer programs tailored specifically to the needs of veterans and provide admissions counselors to assist with tuition credts and proper documentation.
