Selective Service Registration

Attention: Male students between the ages of 18 and 26

Section 3345.32 of the Ohio Revised Code requires male students between the ages of 18 and 26 who are Ohio residents register for the selective service and verify they have registered with the selective service in order to be considered in-state residents to attend Ohio public colleges and universities. Failure to register with selective service and provide verification of such will result, as the law stipulates, in the assessment of the out-of-state surcharge and the loss of student financial aid. The Office of the University Registrar will notify those who, according to the selective service office, have not complied with the law and ask for a statement from the student verifying his selective service status. For additional information about the Selective Service System or for online registration, please visit the website for the Selective Service System.

If you are registered for the selective service, but have not received or have lost your selective service number, call 847.688.2576 or visit the website for the Selective Service System. If you have questions regarding the above, please call 740.593.4182, or visit Registrar Services, Chubb Hall 115, 1 Ohio University, Athens OH 45701, or your regional campus student services office.
