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.
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 verterans and provide admissions
counselors to assist with tuition creidts and proper documentation.
The Armed Services gave you discipline, drive, commitment
and training, now show the world you have what it takes to
succeed after the Army.
