Selective Service Registration and Federal Student Aid

The Military Selective Service Act requires that any male student who is required to register with the Selective Service System and fails to do so shall be ineligible to receive Federal Title IV student financial aid including: Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan, Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan, and Federal Direct Plus Loan.

This requirement affects all male students who are at least 18 years of age, who were born after December 31, 1959 (and have not yet reached their 26th birthday), and who are not currently on active duty with the armed forces. Members of the Reserves and National Guard are not considered on active duty and must be registered. The group of affected males includes citizens and non-citizens eligible to receive Federal financial aid except permanent citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Marshall Islands or the permanent residents of the Republic of Palau.

If you are required to register, answer "register me" on the FAFSA or contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance at 808-245-8360.
