The Selective Service System allows registration online, via a post office mail-in form, through high school registrars or when applying for college loans with a Federal Student Financial Aid form. The SSS is the military conscription program of the United States.
All males residing in the United States, whether citizens or noncitizen immigrants, are required to register with the SSS within 30 days of turning 18 years old. The registration requires a man's full name, address, date of birth and Social Security number if available. Failure to register with the SSS can result in fines and jail time if convicted, as well as a denial of requests for federal grants, loans, aid, benefits and eligibility for government employment.
