GI Bill ® Application and Instructions


There are two ways to apply for your benefits, electronically or via mail.

Online Application:

Go to the website to submit your application. You will be asked to provide the applicant’s basic information along with your, or your sponsor’s, military service information and direct deposit banking/routing information. It takes approximately 30 days to receive a Certificate of Eligibility from the VA.  Paper Application:

Veterans can submit a paper application called Form 22-1990. (Form 22-5490 for dependent beneficiaries) Once completed, mail it to:

VA Regional Processing Office PO Box 8888 Muskogee, OK 74402-8888

***Note***  If you are a Veteran who is eligible for more than one chapter of GI Bill® benefit, you will have to relinquish one benefit to choose the other. Once the choice is made  to receive the Post 9/11 (Chapter 33) benefit, it is irrevocable. See the VA’s Education and Training page of the website and use the comparison tool to decide which chapter would work best with your goals. For more information about each specific chapter available see the Education Programs page of the website.

If you have trouble with the application process, you can contact a VA Education Case Manager (1-888-GIBill1 (1-888-442-4551)) to ask for help.

Licensing and Certifications

If seeking reimbursement for testing fees, search the Public WEAMS for your license or certification.  If your license or certification is listed as approved you may apply for reimbursement with VA Form 22-0803 below. If your license or certification is not listed, please contact our office at or 208-780-1334 for approval information.

On the Job Training (OJT) and Apprenticeship Programs

The GI Bill® can be used in support of OJT (On the Job Training) and Apprenticeships, provided the training program is approved by the State Approving Agency.  This is an industry-based training in which a Veteran or eligible beneficiary earns a regular wage while training for a designated skill or trade and also receives tax-free GI Bill® benefits. OJT’s and Apprenticeships offer a variety of training experiences and a majority of trades are approvable providing that the establishment can satisfy the approval criteria.

  • An OJT program is acceptable in length when it is at least six months, but not more than two years of full-time training per 38 CFR 21.4262(c)(3)
  • An APP is a program that ranges from two years to five years, or 2,000 to 10,000 hours in length.

IHL and NCD School Programs

IHL (Institute of Higher Learning): Universities, colleges, community colleges, technical and/or business schools, offering instruction at the post-secondary level, which leads to an associate (or higher) degree. To be eligible for approval, the institution must be empowered by the appropriate state education authority (under state law) or accredited by a recognized accrediting agency to grant such degrees. This designation also includes hospitals that offer educational programs at the post-secondary level.

NCD (Non-College Degree programs): This category includes certificate programs, which do not lead to a standard college degree (program or course requirement achievements are acknowledged by certificate). NCD programs are normally offered at community colleges, cosmetology institutions, business institutions, hospitals, trade schools, etc.

To apply to become an approved IHL or NCD, please complete either the accredited or non-accredited application appropriate for your facility.
