Mapping Your Future: Selective Service Match is back


Selective Service Match is back

By Catherine Mueller

We just didn't know how much we would miss it until it was gone.

The Central Processing System (CPS) today resumed its daily match with the Selective Service System (SSS) for both 2018-19 and 2019-20.

According to the January 31 Electronic Announcement, the CPS has also begun reprocessing 2018-19 and 2019-20 application and correction records impacted by the SSS match bypass that occurred during the federal government shutdown. During the shutdown, many financial aid professionals have manually researched records for selective service registration.

The Department of Education estimates that up to 600,000 student transactions are affected, including initial applications and corrections submitted to the CPS.
