Transferring MGIB Benefits to the University
You are transferring to the University of Nevada, Reno and need to transfer your GI Bill benefits to continuing your education. This page will give you the information you need to make sure you will continue to receive your GI Bill benefits at UNR.
The process is relatively easy and this should help you submit the correct form(s) to complete that process. The benefit program you are currently receiving benefits under will determine which form you need to submit to our Veteran Services Office.
