Register at:







All young men are legally required to register with Selective Service when they turn 18. If young men don’t register, they can lose their eligibility for student loans and grants, federally funded job training programs, and government jobs. In some states, young men may also be unable to renew their driver’s license without registering for Selective Service. For young immigrants, failing to register can complicate and slow down the process of becoming a citizen.  

The easiest place to register is at, but you can also register by filling out the FAFSA, or picking up a form at any U.S. Post Office and mailing it in.
