VA-ONCE is an enhanced means for submitting VA Forms 22-1999, 22-1999b, and 22-6553c online. The application was developed by a team of schools and VA representatives.
All schools will need to complete a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to gain access to the VA-ONCE application. You should complete the form online, print it, obtain the appropriate signature(s), and mail it to your Education Liaison Representative (ELR). Note: The MOU must be signed by a school official who has the authority to enter into a contract between the institution and VA.
