Specifically, in its current formulation, the statute denies certain federal funding to an institution of higher education that “has a policy or practice ... that either prohibits, or in effect prevents” the military “from gaining access to campuses, or access to students ... on campuses, for purposes of military recruiting in a manner that is at least equal in quality and scope to the access to campuses and to students that is provided to any other employer.” 10 U.S.C. 983 (b).  The statute provides an exception for an institution with “a longstanding policy of pacifism based on historical religious affiliation.” 983(c)(2).  The funding at risk under the Solomon Amendment is limited to funding from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Transportation, Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education, and the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Nuclear Security Administration of the Department of Energy. 10 U.S.C. 983(d)(1).  The statute does not affect funds provided for student financial assistance, 10 U.S.C. 983(d)(2), but the loss of the listed federal funding applies institution wide. 10 U.S.C. 983(b).
