Veterans Administration

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA) administers the GI Bill, and makes all determinations related to Veteran education benefit eligibility and payments.  USDVA also regulates entitlements paid to Veterans and performs all calculations. All questions regarding eligibility and payment of GI Bill benefits must be directed to the USDVA Education Call Center at 1-888-GIBILL1  (1-888-442-4551).


Please visit USDVA’s GI Bill website at https://benefits.va.gov/gibill/ to access education benefit information. Before transferring to another institution, Veterans should know that:


  • USDVA will not pay GI Bill education benefits at an unapproved institution;
  • Only the USDVA can provide assistance or address questions related to GI Bill eligibility or payment.

The GI Bill Web site at www.gibill.va.gov has an easy-to-use online GI Bill Comparison Tool that provides information to calculate benefits and research approved programs, tuition/fees, housing allowance, graduation and loan default rates.  


Veterans may also visit the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) Web site at www.calvet.ca.gov to obtain assistance  with other Veteran needs and services.
