Selective Service System Information

posted Oct 2, 2019, 8:29 AM by Harly Van Brunt

Have you Signed up for Selective Service System?

Did you know that as an 18 year old male, you need to register for Selective Service? All men 18 through 25 must register. It's a law and civic duty. You can also pre-register at 17yrs and 3mos of age and your registration will be held until you turn 18. Many people don’t know that failure to register carries lifelong consequences. If a man fails to register by age 25, he can lose access to college loans and grants, job training programs, millions of federal, state, and municipal jobs. Also, immigrants, documented and undocumented, must register or their citizenship process can be derailed.

Registration takes less than a minute – so there’s no excuse. Go to sss.gov or go to your nearest post office; they have a mail-in form there. While almost all men register, those who don’t often say, “I just forgot,” or “nobody told me.” So please register and pass it on to any 18-25 year-old man you know.

If you have any questions, feel free to stop in the counseling office or go online to the Selective Service System page for more information.
