Establish the GI Bill and other educational benefits for which you qualify.

If you are an active duty service member anticipating at least a 20% service-connected disability rating, or a veteran with a 20% disability rating or greater, you should first determine any benefits to which you are entitled under Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E, chapter 31). Additional Information.

NOTE: If you need any help making your choice, VA Vocational and Employment counseling help is available to all veterans toll free at 1-800-827-1000. You also can discuss your options with a VA education benefits specialist by calling toll-free 1-888-GIBILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or TDD at (800) 829-4833.

Visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website and go to their Roadmap for Success website.

Apply for benefits online or by mail.

At the above website, you can complete online application forms or print and send the forms by mail. The online forms are recommended as they are processed much more quickly. If you need help with the process or need to know what to bring to the VA office, contact the Wright State VA Office at (937) 775-5550 or veteransaffairs@wright.edu.

Applicants requiring services from Wright State that are available to students with physical and/or learning disabilities should contact the Office of Disability Services prior to enrollment. A pre-service interview and professional documentation of disability are required prior to utilization of our services. The purpose of the interview is to assess disability-related needs and to plan services accordingly. Most services are provided to students at no cost, however fee-based services such as personal assistance and out of class reader/writer assistance can be billed directly to agencies or students.

Please take a moment to learn more about the application process (PDF) for the Office of Disability Services.
