The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) administers a
number of education programs for which US Army personnel can
qualify. The programs consist of:
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.
