Exemptions & Waivers - Selective Service Requirement

Modified on Thu, 15 Jun 2023 at 11:13 AM

To comply with new state regulations, all students are required to have submitted proof of registration for Selective Service with the State of Texas, as well as signing a statement that says the student has completed the Selective Service registration. These two requirements must be met in order to comply with state regulations.


You are required to submit a questionnaire about your Selective Service registration status. You will not be able to receive your waiver and/or exemption until this has been completed. 

If you need to register for Selective Service, this can be done at https://www.sss.gov/register/.


You may complete your Selective Service Questionnaire in your Financial Aid Portal by following the steps below.


-Login to the Howdy Portal.

- Click on "My Finances" and enter the Financial Aid Portal.

- Click on the Status link on the left menu. 

- Select the current academic year.

- Click on Selective Service Statement under To Do

- Complete the Selective Service Statement of Registration Status.

-If you are an international student, select "Exempt" since international students are not required to register for Selective Service. 

-Once both requirements have been met, your waiver/exemption will be added back to your student account by an automated process that runs each night.
