Selective Service System
The law states that all 18-year-old men (including U.S. citizens living abroad and non-citizen immigrant males 18-25 residing in the U.S.) must register. The only young men exempt from registration are non-citizen males who are in the U.S. temporarily as tourists, diplomats and their family members, or foreign exchange students; incarcerated or institutionalized men; men on active duty in the Armed Forces; and students at U.S. military academies.
Men should register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Registration can be done via the Internet at: www.sss.gov. You can also register at your local post office.
Selective Service NOW accepts early submission of registration information by 17-year-old males once they turn 17 years and 3 months old.
