Selective Reserve (Chapter 1606)

If you are eligible for Chapter 1606 and have not been approved to receive educational benefits, you need to complete a Veterans On-Line Application (Form 22-1990) at the website.

Servicemen that have been approved to receive Chapter 1606 benefits, or are transferring to BGSU, need to complete a BGSU VA Intent Form - Military Member.

The Aviation Flight Technology program and courses do not qualify for GI Bill® or VA education benefits. However, many students are eligible for other military education benefits; Please contact Nontraditional and Military Student Services at 419 372-8136 or for further information.

If you served overseas for 30 consecutive or 60 nonconsecutive days, your International Perspective requirement (if your major requires one) can be waived. Submission of a DD214 indicating foreign service dates is required.

To possible benefit from your military service, a military transcript should be submitted as soon as possible. A Joint Military Transcript may be ordered at the Joint Services Transcript website for those who served in the Army, Marines, Navy or Coast Guard. Members of the Air Force may order transcripts at the Air Force website.
