Selective Service Policy Information

Selective Service Registration

Almost all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25 years of age, are required to register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday.

A man is exempt from registering while he is on full-time active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces. Members of the National Guard and Reserve Forces not on full-time active duty must register. When a man has been released from active duty he must register at that time unless he has reached age 26 or is already registered.  Lawfully admitted nonimmigrant aliens (for example, those on student visas) are not required to register.

For complete information regarding who must register for Selective Service and exemptions, or to register with Selective Services, please visit the U.S. Government Official Selective Services System website, https://www.sss.gov/  

Selective Service Registration and Ohio Residency (for Tuition Purposes)

Ohio Revised Code 3345.32 (http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/3345.32) mandates that Ohio students who are required to register with the U.S. Selective Service yet who have not done so are ineligible for state of Ohio tuition subsidy.  Under the law, Ohio institutions of higher learning are required to charge such students the non-resident tuition rate.  If you are considered by Wright State University to be an Ohio resident-for-tuition-purposes, but you are not registered with Selective Services, Wright State University is required by this law to assess the non-resident tuition rate to your student bill.

To continue your Ohio-resident-for-tuition-purposes classification, Wright State University is required to obtain your Selective Service Registration Number.

If you are already registered, but you do not remember your Selective Service Registration Number, you can obtain it at the official Selective Services website, https://www.sss.gov/

It is the student's responsibility to provide the Wright State University Office of the Registrar with that number.  If you do not provide that registration number to the Office of the Registrar, Wright State University must assess non-resident tuition fees to your tuition bill.   

Students are expected to make full payment by their appropriate payment due date.  Payment deadlines may not be waived or extended while a student's residency status is under review or while you are waiting to receive your Selective Service Registration Number.
