Regulations and Laws on Military Draft Registration (Selective Service) by State

Driver’s License Linked to Registration? No.

Registration Linked to Access to Higher Education? Yes, must be registered to receive state financial aid.

Registration Required for State Employment? No.

In 1997 the state changed the New Jersey Statutes to make compliance with the SSS registration a prerequisite to receive state loans or financial aid for higher education.  This can be satisfied through the completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or by providing proof of registration directly to the institution providing the money.
