Using my VA Benefits


Change of Place of Training/Program

If you have already received your Educational Benefits for attendance at another institution or for a different program, you do not need to reapply for your benefits. Please refer to the instructions below.


  1. Complete VA Form 22-1995 to notify the VA that you are changing your school. The Department of Veterans Affairs will send another Certificate of Eligibility (COE). You will need to bring in a copy to your School Certifying Official.

    Wives or widows of qualifying veterans, who have previously received Chapter 35 benefits, should complete VA Form 22-5495.
  2. If you change your major, you must notify your School Certifying Official and your advisor to make the proper changes in your account.
