Title: Transfer of Scholastic Credit (Schools), VA Form Letter 22-315.

OMB Control Number: 2900-0118.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: Students receiving VA education benefits and are enrolled in two training institutions, must have the primary institution at which the student pursues his or her approved program of education verify that courses pursued at a secondary school will be accepted as full credit towards the student's course objective. VA sends VA Form Letter 22-315 to the student requesting that they have the certifying official of his or her primary institution to list the course or courses pursued at the secondary school for which the primary institution will give full credit. Educational payment for courses pursued at a secondary school is not payable until VA receives evidence from the primary institution verifying that the student is pursuing his or her approved program while enrolled in these courses. VA Form Letter 22-315 serves as this certification of acceptance.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
