DD Form 2384-1 Instructions

The applicant has to make sure they meet the eligibility criteria for the MGIB-SR program, before obtaining the NOBE DD Form 2384. The eligibility will be coded into the Department of Defense (DoD) personnel system by their unit so that the Veterans Service Administration can verify the provided information.

The program chosen by the applicant must be approved for VA training. In case there are any incompatibilities the VA can inform the applicant, school, or company of the requirements. They should also obtain and complete VA Form 22-1990, Application for Educational Benefits, and then submit it to the VA regional office with jurisdiction over the state where the applicant is going to receive their training.
