Selective Service Registration

Males (any person assigned the sex of male at birth) ages 18 through 25 are required to register with the Selective Service System (SSS) in order to be eligible for Federal Student Aid (FSA) and the State of Georgia Financial Aid Programs.

The Department of Education conducts an automated system match with the Selective Service to confirm a male student’s registration.

Male students age 18 through 25 who have not yet registered with the SSS can do so when they complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or they can register on the Selective Service System Web site

Males age 26 or older are not permitted to register with Selective Service and are considered not eligible for FSA or State of Georgia student financial aid.  However, a student may still be eligible to receive aid if he can demonstrate to the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) that he did not knowingly and willfully fail to register, or if he was exempt from registration.  Students who did not register and can no longer register should contact OSFA to discuss.
