(NAPSI)—Young men looking for the money they need to pay for college may want to start their search by checking their Selective Service registration status on the Internet at www.sss.gov.

That’s because young men are required to register with the Selective Service System within 30 days of turning 18—it’s the law.

Fulfilling this obligation can keep a young man eligible to find the money needed for college. Registration with the Selective Service is required in order for a young man to be eligible for Pell Grants, Federal Work-Study, and Guaranteed Student PLUS Loans, as well as federal job training and federal jobs.

Registration takes a minute, by either checking block #22 on the Federal FAFSA Student Aid Application or by going online at www.sss.gov from your smartphone or computer. If you don’t have access to the computer, then pick up a registration form at any U.S. post office.

Some states even require it for a driver’s license. Registration is also required of a young man who wishes to become a citizen.

Failure to register can result in a fine, time in prison or both.

To learn more about registration, visit www.sss.gov.
