Selective Service

Federal law requires men, 18 through 25 years old, to be registered with the Selective Service System (SSS). Females are excluded from the requirement. The law applies to male citizens and immigrant aliens, but not to foreign students who hold student visas. Men must be registered before they can receive Federal or State financial aid for school, including loans and grants. Registration forms are available at any post office and at Cuesta College Admissions and Records Office and at the Financial Aid Office, or a man can register on-line by visiting the SSS web page at
