Am I required to register with Selective Services?

According to the Official website of the United States Government, Selective Service System:

  • "Immigrant men (documented or undocumented) are required to register with Selective Services." 
  • "Men must register with Selective Services within 30 days of his 18th birthday."
  • "Registering with Selective Services is not signing up for the Armed Services. The Selective Service System is not part of the Department of Defense."


"The Selective Service System has not now, or in the past, collected or shared any information which would indicate a man's immigration status, either documented or undocumented. The Selective Service System has no authority to collect such information, has no use for it, and it is irrelevant to the registration requirement. Consequently, there is no immigration data to share with anyone."
