Selective Service Registration

The Selective Service System is a means by which the United States maintains information on those potentially subject to military conscription. All males between the ages of 18 to 25 are required by law to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday.

Registration for Selective Service is also required for various federal programs and benefits, including student loans, job training, federal employment, and naturalization.

At this time, the Selective Service System online registration site is temporarily unavailable for overseas registrants. For security reasons, overseas registrants should complete the form below and mail it to the Selective Service System at the following address:
