Survivors' and Dependants' Educational Assistance
First-time applicants: need to complete VA Form 22-5490 (Application for Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance). To expedite the process it is recommended that this application is filled out online at https://vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp/main.asp Dependents or spouses of 100 percent VA-rated disabled or deceased veterans must provide a copy of their birth certificates or marriage licenses when applying to facilitate processing by the VA. The copy of the birth certificate or marriage license can be dropped off or mailed to the VA Office in Room 112, Acadian Center.
After the application is processed by the VA, students will receive a letter stating their "Explanation of Benefits". This letter will tell the student the amount of VA Educational Benefits they are eligible for. All students must also bring or send a copy of their "Explanation of Benefits" to the VA Office in Room 112, Acadian Center.
Transfer students, or LSU Eunice students who have changed their degree plan after already receiving benefits under chapter 35, must complete the VA form 22-1995 (Request for Change of Program or Place of Training). Click here for a list of approved programs at LSU Eunice.
All VA students must also bring or send a copy of their current schedule to the VA Office in rm. 112 in the Acadian Center. This must be done each semester, as soon as they schedule classes. The VA office at LSU Eunice cannot certify students to receive payments from the VA until a current schedule is received.
