Selective Service Registration

HOW TO REGISTER

The easiest and fastest way for a man to register is to register online. Or a man can fill out a registration form and send it to the Selective Service System. The form asks for the young man’s full name,

address, date of birth, and Social Security Number (if he has one). On a form that is sent in, his signature is also required. Here are some places to register:

 

REGISTER ONLINE

Young men may now register online with Selective Service: www.sss.gov

 

AT THE POST OFFICE

Selective Service “mail-back” registration forms are available at any U.S. Post Office. A man can fill it out, sign (leaving the space for his Social Security Number blank, if he has not yet obtained one*),

affix postage, and mail it to Selective Service, without the involvement of the postal clerk. Men living overseas may register at any U.S. Embassy or consular office. *Provide your Social Security Number to the Selective Service when you do obtain one.

 

FAFSA FORM (CHECK BOX)

Another way a young man can register is to check a box on the application form for Federal Student Financial Aid (FAFSA form). A man can check “Register Me” on Box #22 of that form, and the Department of Education will furnish Selective Service with the information to register the man.

 

AT YOUR HIGH SCHOOL

More than half the high schools in the nation have a staff member or teacher appointed as a Selective Service Registrar. These individuals help register male high school students.
