How do I appeal the the Selective Service requirement?

Selective Service Requirement: If a person is required to be registered with the Selective Service System, he must have registered before he can receive student financial aid. With few exceptions, all males between the ages of 18 through 25 are required to register with the Selective Service System. This includes all students with permanent resident and other eligible non-citizenship statuses. Additional information is available under the College Financial Aid website www.nvcc.edu/finance or the Selective Service System web site www.sss.gov.

Appeal Procedures: If you receive a comment on your Student Aid Report, or you are advised by the College Financial Aid Office that your registration could not be confirmed by the Selective Service System, you must provide the College Financial Aid Office with additional documentation to determine your eligibility for financial aid. You must present one of the following documents:

  1. Selective Service Registration Acknowledgment or Verification postcard, or
  2. Letter of registration confirmation from the Selective Service System. To appeal the selective service requirement please complete NVCC Form 125-311 www.nvcc.edu/forms/pdf/125-311.pdf.

(Starting with the 2014-2015 financial aid award year, NOVA financial aid will begin its transition to the use of online based forms (E-Forms). These forms will be available via the NOVA Financial Aid Dashboard, be directly linked to a student’s MyNOVA “To Do List,” and accept electronic signatures. While this is being launched in a limited capacity, it is important to note that the addition of E-Forms will greatly increase the financial aid office’s ability to process FAFSA applications.)
