Apply for benefits
Before you can use your GI Bill® benefits at the University of Minnesota, we may require documents from you. The application to start using your GI Bill or change the benefit to your University of Minnesota campus should be completed on the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs’ website. We do not recommend applying via paper application. Processing time for the paper application may be delayed by more than two months.
- Veteran or service member: Apply at Vets.gov
- Dependents using Chapter 33 Post 9/11 or Chapter 35: Apply at eBenefits.va.gov
If you are a new student, use the chart below to help identify which documents we need based on your benefit.
