Junior

Attention all 17 and 18 year old men

When you turn 18, the law says that you must register with Selective Service.

Those who fail to register may be denied student loans, government jobs, and driver's licenses in most states. In addition, if you are a male immigrant seeking to become a citizen, you must also be registered, regardless of your immigration status.

You can get a Selective Service registration card at your local post office or register at www.sss.gov.

Registering with Selective Service is important to your future, it keeps you eligible for many opportunities, and it's the law.
