Selective Service Requirement Removed from ISAC's Rules


In connection with the U.S. Department of Education's early implementation of the portion of the FAFSA Simplification Act that removed the Selective Service registration requirement for receipt of federal student aid, ISAC Administrative Rules have been revised to reflect the same change.

Effective August 16, 2021, the requirement that each applicant must comply with Selective Service requirements as stated in federal regulations was deleted from ISAC's rules (General Provisions, Section 2700.40(i), General Applicant Eligibility Requirements). We are in the process of updating resource information, including program pages on the website, and will revise application documents and other operational material as necessary as we move through the processing year.

In light of this change, moving forward, ISAC's programs will no longer include Selective Service registration as an eligibility requirement, and application processing will not include a check for Selective Service status, nor will an applicant be deemed ineligible due to failure to register for Selective Service.
