2020-21 Military Visits

Typically military reps visit our campus during lunch. Unfortunately, with that not an option this year, many have scheduled virtual visits. View our College Visits Page for a list of Military Reps that have scheduled virtual sessions and register via the link provided.  

Register - It's the Law

Almost all male U.S. citizens and male immigrants, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service WITHIN 30 DAYS of their 18th birthday.

You can do so:

  • online

  • at your local post office

Student Financial Aid

Men, born after December 31, 1959, who aren't registered with Selective Service won't qualify for federal student loans or grant programs. This includes Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Direct Stafford Loans/Plus Loans, National Direct Student Loans, and College Work Study.

It's important to know that even though he is registered, a man will not automatically be inducted into the military. In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in a sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces.
