Selective Service Registration

According to Federal Law, all men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.  You must register with Selective Service to file your FAFSA or California Dream Act and to stay eligible for student loans and financial aid, government jobs, job training and obtaining or renewing a drivers license in most states. Registration is easy and takes only a matter of minutes.  Simply go online at or visit the local Post Office and ask for a registration card.  You may not know that even non-citizens are required to register.
