Find SchoolsFollow these two steps to get REAP benefits, and then AllMilitary.com can help you find schools where you can use your benefits:

  1. Find a VA-Approved Educational Program

    Most regionally and nationally accredited colleges and universities are VA-approved. But you can double-check if the institution you want to attend is VA-approved by calling the toll-free GI Bill phone number: 1-888-GIBILL-1. AllMilitary.com can also help you find schools.

  2. Paperwork

    If This Is Your First Time Applying for Benefits
    1. Complete an Application for VA Education Benefits form (VA Form 22-1990). Write “REAP” in Section One of the form.
    2. Send it to the VA regional office that has jurisdiction over the state where you will be training.

    If You Are Eligible for Other VA Educational Benefits
    1. Complete a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training form (VA Form 22-1995) and indicate you want to use REAP.
    2. Locate all copies of your Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214) forms and copies of all orders for the period or periods you will use to claim eligibility.
    3. Send your paperwork to the VA regional office that has jurisdiction over the state where you will be training.
