Veterans Benefits, Step 2

Step 2: Applying for educational benefits

The process of receiving your veteran educational benefits involves a few steps, and the certifying official in the Registrar’s Office is happy to assist you. It is important that you review the terms of your veterans educational benefits. This is especially important as there have been many changes from the former Montgomery GI Bill® to the new Post-9/11 GI Bill®.

After you have reviewed the terms of your benefits, you will apply for educational benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' GI Bill® website.

If you have previously received VA benefits at another school, you need to complete Form 22-1995: Request for Change of Program or Place of Training through the GI Bill® website.

If you have not yet established or used VA Education benefits, you should complete VA Form 22-1990: Application for VA Educational Benefits. This form is available online at or Fill-in and printable PDF. If you choose the printable application, the application must be sent to:

VA Regional Office - Western Region
P.O. Box 8888
Muskogee, OK 74402-8888
