PART II: SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION INFORMATION

WHO MUST REGISTER


Section 3 of the Military Selective Service Act requires that all male United States citizens and male aliens, except aliens lawfully admitted to the United States as nonimmigrants on visas (e.g., students, tourists, and diplomatic and consular personnel and their families), residing in the United States and its territories, who are 18 through 25 years of age, register with Selective Service. They must do so within the 30 days before or after their 18th birthday. Men may still register late, as long as they have not yet turned 26 years of age. For further information on who must register, refer to the “Who Must Register” chart on page 10.

 
JOB TRAINING AND OTHER BENEFITS LINKED TO REGISTRATION


Men who fail to register, as required by law, may lose eligibility for valuable benefits or privileges, such as job training under the Federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA), student financial aid under the Title IV of the Higher Education Act and Educational benefits, which include such need-based programs as Guaranteed Student Loans and Pell Grants. In addition, the opportunity to work for the Federal Government and the U.S. Postal Service, or, if an immigrant, the privilege of becoming a United States citizen may be denied to otherwise eligible men if they fail to register.
