Saturday, November 18, 2017

Before you can receive VA educational benefits, you must apply to the VA to activate them.

  1. Go to the online VA application. If you were in the military, you complete a 22-1990 form; if you are a dependent, you complete a 22-5490 form. Be sure to bring a copy of this form in when you visit us for the first time.
  2. Several weeks after you submit your VA application, you will receive your Certificate of Eligibility in the mail. You must submit this Certificate to the Veteran Services Office to begin receiving benefits at UA - Pulaski Tech.
