GOVS Bulletin Board!
This is where we will post non-curricular information for all our GOVS students.
- If you are a MALE and close to 18 years old, keep reading.
- Did you know that you are required by law to register for the Selective Service within 30 days of your 18th birthday?
- You can preregister if you are 17 years and 3 months old (so about 9 months from your actual 18th birthday).
- Registration is not only a legal requirement, but a civic duty and a key component of our national defense readiness.
- Why is all this important? If you turn 26 and have never registered, the door is permanently closed. That means you are unable to receive federal college loans, grants, training, and will be ineligible for many state & local government jobs.
- We can't stress this enough -- taking 45 seconds online to register can save you 45 years of headaches and heartache.
Here's how to register!
Remember that this is only for boys, and you have to either be 18 years old or within 9 months of turning 18.
You will need your social security number to register online.
