This form MUST be completed every semester in order to receive benefits.

This can be done by calling 1-877-823-2378 or going to the WAVE system.
Students who are transferring from another college or university need to fill out a Request for Change of Program or Place of Training, or VA Form 22-1995 if they used VA Educational benefits
Dependents are required to fill out a different form, the Request for Change of Program or Place of Training for Survivors' and Dependents Education Assistance, or VA Form 22-5495.
