HIGH SCHOOL MEN, if you are 18 years of age or older you must register with SELECTIVE SERVICE. Even though our country presently has no draft, Selective Service registration is the law! A man who fails to register may face a fine and/or a prison term and will be disqualified from receiving federal student loans or grants, such as Pell Grants, National Direct Student Loans, and College Work Study. So please register! You can do it right here by clicking on this link.
