If you have never used your Veteran’s education benefits you can apply online at or fill out this paper version of the  VBA22-1990 form and our financial aid office will help you submit the paperwork to the Veterans Benefits Administration. Once your application is approved by the VA, you will receive your Certificate of Eligibilty.  Your length of service and the chapter of benefit indicated on the Certificate of Eligibilty will determine how much the VA will pay for training. If you plan on using financial aid in addition to your VA benefits, you will also need to complete a FAFSA form .

Chapter 33 (Post911) pays the school directly, so you are allowed to start a program without *full payment, if you can provide your VA Certificate of Eligibility in advance. All other chapters pay the veteran directly, so those students would either self-pay or have the option of applying for financial aid.

To apply for Veteran’s Education Benefits, you will need the following:
