Register for selective service (males only)
Federal law requires males, between the ages of 18 and 25, living in the United States, to register for selective service. Additionally, Georgia state law (O.C.G.A. § 20-3-519.1(b)) requires selective service registration for males to qualify for Georgia’s state aid programs, which includes Dual Enrollment funding and HOPE Grant funding. Therefore, all males 18 years and older must register for selective service to receive funding for their CCI program.
