Montgomery GI Bill Selected Reserve Educational Assistance Program
If You Have Never Applied for VA Education Benefits
The VA prefers that you complete the VonAPP application on the GI Bill website. The application gives you the opportunity to attach documents. You should attach a copy of your DD-214 (showing your initial training), an up-to-date Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE) (available from your unit) and, if applicable, a copy of your kicker from your contract. If the website will not allow you attach a big file, send the application anyway and make a copy of the confirmation number information. Bring the confirmation number along with the DD-214, NOBE and kicker (if applicable) to UNLV's Office of Veteran Services. UNLV will fax the copies to the VA. The paper application (form 22-1990) is available on this website under Forms to Process Your Veteran’s Benefits. The paper application should be mailed to the appropriate regional processing office. Always keep a copy of the application form for your records.
The VA requires you to send an official copy of your military transcript to UNLV for evaluation. Get an instruction sheet.
Bring a copy of your DD-214 Copy 4 (discharge paper) to the certifying official.
A copy of your degree sheet. This is available from your academic advisor. The copy given to the certifying official should show all transferred, completed credits. Certification for benefits cannot be done without this information.
If you are concurrently enrolled with another school, and want those credits certified, complete the Concurrent Enrollment Form available on this website under Forms to Process Your Veteran’s Benefits.
