Applying for Veterans Affairs & State of Virginia Benefits
All applications can be completed online on the GI-Bill® website.
Veteran students wanting to use their benefits for the first time must complete the application for Education Benefits (VA form 22-1990) and provide an original certified copy of their discharge papers (DD Form 214, Member 4) to the Military & Veteran Service Center.
Dependent students who believe they are eligible for dependent educational benefits should complete an application for Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (VA form 22-5490) and provide their sponsor's ID number to the Military & Veteran Service Center.
Additionally, if the dependent and their sponsor have resided in Virginia for at least 5 years, they can apply for the Virginia Military Survivor & Dependent Education Program (VMSDEP).
