Attention Male Students:

SELECTIVE SERVICE REGISTRATION is the law and you should register within 30 days of your 18th birthday. A valid social security number is required for online registration.

You can register with Selective Service at: https://www.sss.gov/

If you do not have a social security number, you must register by filling out a paper registration form, signing, and mailing it.

Male students who fail to register with Selective Service are ineligible for Federal student loan and grant programs, including Pell Grants, Federal Work Study, and Stafford Loans. Several states have also made Selective Service registration a prerequisite for state financial aid as well as the application process at public colleges and universities.


Students are always welcome to stop in to see Mrs. Dixon with questions.
