SELECTIVE SERVICE SYSTEM
Privacy Act of 1974; Computer Matching Between the Selective
Service System and the Department of Education
AGENCY: Selective Service System.
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as
amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988
(Pub. L. 100-
503), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidelines on the
Conduct of Matching Programs (54 FR 25818 (June 19, 1989)), and OMB
Bulletin 89-22, the following information is provided:
1. Name of participating agencies. The Selective Service System
(SSS) and the Department of Education (ED).
2. Purpose of the match. The purpose of this matching program is to
ensure that the requirements of section 12(f) of the Military Selective
Service Act (50 U.S.C. App. 462(f)) are met.
3. Authority for conducting the matching program. Computerized
access to the Selective Service Registrant Registration Records (SSS
10) enables the Department of Education to confirm the registration
status of applicants for assistance under Title IV of the Higher
Education Act of 1965 (HEA), as amended (20 U.S.C. 1070 et seq.).
Section 12(f) of the Military Selective Service Act, as amended (50
U.S.C. App. 462(f)), denies eligibility for any form of assistance or
benefit under Title IV of the HEA to any person required to present
himself and submit to registration under section 3 of the Military
Selective Service Act who fails to do so in accordance with that
section and any rules and regulations issued under that section. In
addition, the Military Selective Service Act and section 484(n) of the
HEA which allows the data match to fulfill the statement requirement
specifies that any person required to present himself and submit to
registration under section 3 of the Military Selective Service Act file
a statement that he is in compliance with the Military Selective
Service Act. Furthermore, section 12(f)(3) of the Military Selective
Service Act authorizes the Secretary of Education, in agreement with
the Director of the Selective Service System, to prescribe methods for
verifying the statements of compliance filed by students.
Section 484(n) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (20
U.S.C. 1091(n)), requires the Secretary of Education to conduct data
base matches with the Selective Service System, using common
demographic data elements, to enforce the Selective Service
registration provisions of the Military Selective Service Act (50 App.
U.S.C. 462(f)), and further states that appropriate confirmation of a
person's registration shall fulfill the requirement to file a separate
statement of compliance.
4. Categories of records and individuals covered. (1) Federal
Student Aid Application File (18-40-0014). Individuals covered are men
born after December 31, 1959, but at least 18 years old by June 30 of
the applicable award year. (2) Selective Service Registration Records
5. Inclusive dates of the matching program. Commence on July 1,
1997 or 40 days after copies of the agreement are transmitted

the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight of the House of
Representatives, and the Office of Management and Budget, whichever is
later, and remain in effect for eighteen months unless earlier
terminated or modified by agreement of the parties.

Gonzalez, Jr., COL EN, Director for Operations, 1515 Wilson Boulevard,
Arlington, VA 22209-2425.
