Germanna makes every effort to assist active-duty military personnel and veterans in their academic pursuits. Many of our programs of study are approved by the state department of education for the payment of Veterans educational benefits. Application forms and assistance with benefits are available in the Admissions and Records Office at either campus.
Students using 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-214).
Students who believe they are eligible for dependents’ educational benefits should complete an Application for Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance (VA form 22-5490). Veterans who have used their benefits at another school must complete a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training (VA form 22-1995). All applications can be completed on line on the GI-Bill website.
