First Time Using G.I. Bill Benefits?
First Time Ever
You must apply through the Veterans Administration (VA) to begin using your benefits.
Non-Chapter 35 Recipients:
- if you are Active Duty, you must have your Education Officer sign Part VII.
- if you are not Active Duty, you must submit your Member 4 copy of your DD-214 along with your application.
- if you are a Reservist, you must submit your Notification of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) along with your application.
Have you used G.I. Bill benefits before (at another institution)?

If you are completing the hard copy form, submit it to the Registrar's Office with the Veterans Clearance Form by mail or fax.
