Ready to use your benefits?
Veterans interested in using their benefits at Rush for the first time should:
- First-time using VA Education Benefits at all? Apply for benefits through the VA - If the veteran has never used their veterans benefits at an institution before, this step must be completed.
- First-time using VA Education Benefits at Rush? Submit form 22-1995 or form 22-5495 (as appropriate) online - If the veteran has used veterans education benefits before, but is a first-time benefits-user at Rush University, the appropriate form must be submitted.
- First-time veterans at Rush University must provide a copy of their eligibility letter from the VA (as well as any change of program forms from step 2, above) to the Office of Student Financial Aid before benefits can be certified with the VA.
