Each family member must first apply for a certificate of eligibility from the DVA before they can use their transferred benefits.
The application for the certificate of eligibility (VA Form 22-1990E) can be found through the Department of Veterans Affairs’ VONAPP
Web Site. The following are Step-by Step instructions for VONAPP

DD 214 with qualifying Active Duty Service
If Applicable, a current copy of active duty orders with qualifying service
Submit your application
Contact the VA Certifying Official at your school and let them know that you have submitted your application for transferred educational benefits via VONAPP.
After the VA receives your application they will send you a Certificate of Eligibility
After receiving their certificates of eligibility from the DVA, your family members must provide the certificates to the school.
If your family members do not receive their certificates of eligibility from the DVA before they enroll in school, they should ask the veterans’ certifying official at the school to submit to the DVA an enrollment certification for the academic term.
Tuition funds will be sent direct from the DVA to the school. Children using months of
transferred benefit will receive the monthly living stipend and the books and supplies stipend. A
spouse using a transferred benefit will only receive the book and supply stipend. A spouse may
also be eligible for the living allowance if he/she uses the benefit after you separate
from active duty.
