You may qualify for these benefits if you:
You will receive a monthly stipend for personal use each month for 36 months (rate as of October 1, 2006), if you are a full-time student. Your benefit will be reduced proportionately for part-time enrollment.
Visit http://www.gibill.va.gov/resources/benefits_resources/rate_tables.html for complete information on current rates.
The Department of Defense may make additional contributions, or kickers, on your behalf if you are an individual who served in a critical military field. Contact your unit to find out if you qualify for the kicker.
Your benefit affects financial aid in the same way as scholarships or other need-based education resources. Chapter 1606 benefits do not affect your eligibility for a Federal Pell or Minnesota State grant.
Your benefits must be used while actively drilling with a National Guard/Reserve unit. Once you leave the National Guard/Reserves, your education benefit ends.
Please submit completed forms or document copies to the Veterans Certification Office (MHC 126), according to your circumstances.
If you have never applied for benefits, submit:
1. Application for VA Benefits (22-1990)
2. Notice of Basic Eligibility (NOBE)
3. Kicker Agreement, if applicable
If you have had a one-year break in attendance at the University, or if you used your benefit at another institution, submit:
1. Change of Program or Place of Training (22-1995)
