Register with Selective ServiceAll men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. However, the Selective Service now accepts early submission of registration information by 17-year-old men. Male students who fail to register with Selective Service before turning age 26 are ineligible for Federal student loan and grant programs, including Pell Grants,Federal Work Study, and Stafford Loans. (Parents who want to borrow a PLUS loan do not have to satisfy the registration requirement.) Several states have also made Selective Service registration a prerequisite for state financial aid and for matriculation at public colleges and universities.
