If you are a veteran transfer student, you will need to fill out the online change of program/training form VA 22-1995. The online 22-1995 form is available at the GI Bill website: http://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp
To change your major, you are required to meet with an academic counselor.
It will take the VA approximately six to eight weeks, from the first day of class, to process your application. If your application is incomplete or additional documents are required, your first assistance check will be delayed. For example, if you start your semester on September 1st, you would not receive your BAH stipend until November 1st.
Every student can apply for financial aid to supplement his or her GI Bill education benefits.
This is an automatic payment made by the Department of Veterans Affairs for breaks in between terms. Effective August 1, 2011, break pay is NO LONGER AUTHORIZED under all VA education benefit programs. Please be sure to budget accordingly!
