Solomon Amendment Requests

About the Solomon Amendment

The Solomon Amendment is a federal law that requires institutions receiving certain federal agency funding to fulfill military recruitment requests for access to campus and for lists containing student recruiting information. It provides branches of the military access to certain student information, which would have been denied them under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Recruiters may receive student recruiting information for the previous, current, or future term.

The Solomon Amendment only applies to students, age 17 and older, currently enrolled in at least one credit hour. Based on the information military recruiters may request, along with the data elements the College collects, JCC can provide:
