VA Benefits at HGST
We accept VA Benefits for persons under chapters 30, 31, 32, and 33. Students applying for aid under chapter 31 should meet with their Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor and bring the necessary paperwork to the Registrar’s Office. Students applying for aid under chapters 30, 32, or 33 should follow the steps below to ensure proper processing of their VA Education Benefits.
- If you have used your benefits before at another school, you will need to submit a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training, VA Form 22-1995, to the VA. You may also submit this form electronically on the VA Benefits website.
- If you have never used your VA benefits before, you will need to submit an Application for VA Education Benefits, VA Form 22-1990, to the VA. You may also submit this form electronically on the VA Benefits website.
- All students receiving VA funds must submit a copy of their DD-214 and military transcript to the Registrar’s Office.
- After you have submitted the proper form, ask the Registrar to certify your courses in the VA Once system.
