     Selective Service: Young men MUST register for Selective Service, it's the law. Fill in a simple registration form within 30 days of your 18th birthday. If you're a resident of the United States you must register, even if you're from another country and not a U.S. citizen; living in the U.S. illegally. It's easy to register with Selective Service. You can enter your information via the internet at http://www.sss.gov, or complete, sign and return the card you may get in the mail, or fill out an SSS registration form at a Post Office. Registering with Selective Service does NOT mean joining the military. Students who are not registered won't qualify for federal student aid and grant programs. You must be registered with Selective Service to work for the federal government. You must be registered to receive United States citizenship if you were not born in the U.S. Not registering is against the law.
