Definitions for "Selective Service"
Submenu Selective Service is registration for the military draft. Male students who are US citizens and have reached the age of 18 must be registered with Selective Service to be eligible for federal financial aid. If the student did not register and is past the age of doing so (18-25), and the school determines that the failure to register was knowing and willful, the student is ineligible for all federal student financial aid programs. The school's decision as to whether the failure to register was willful is not subject to appeal. Students needing help resolving problems concerning their Selective Service registration should call 1-847-688-6888.
If required by law, you must register with Selective Service before receiving any Federal financial aid. You will be required to sign a statement indicating that you have registered with Selective Service or explaining why you are not required to register. The Selective Service registration requirement applies to males born on or after January 1, 1960, who are at least 18, are citizens or eligible non-citizens, and are not currently on active duty in the armed forces.
