The forms are available at California high schools and Fullerton College Financial Aid Offices. GPA verification forms must be completed by the institution where the student last completed 24 units and MUST be submitted by March 2nd.

Once you have registered, within 90 days you should receive registration acknowledgement from Selective Service, which will serve as official proof of registration. However, if registration acknowledgement is not received within 90 days, we encourage you to verify with Selective Service that registration was received. Verification of registration may be obtained on-line at www.sss.gov, by telephone at (847) 688-6888, or by mail, as follows:
Selective Service System
Registration Information Office
P.O. Box 94638 Palatine, IL 60094-4638
Registering with Selective Service does NOT mean that you are joining the military. The United States will utilize the names and addresses of men between the ages of 18 and 25, in case of a national emergency that requires a draft.
For students who did not register and are 26 years of age or older, you must complete and submit a Selective Service System Registration Form (you may not register on-line). The application must be accompanied by a letter of explanation setting forth the reason for your failure to register between the age of 18 and 25.
Selective Service will send a letter of confirmation to you, confirming that you are not required to register due to your age. This letter will fulfill the Financial Aid requirement.
For additional information, please contact Selective Service System at indicated above, or contact the Financial Aid Office at (714) 992-7050, or visit our office.
If you do not have a social security number, you must register at any U.S. Post Office by filling out the Selective Service "mail-back" registration. A male can fill it out (leaving the space for his Social Security Number blank, if he has not yet obtained one), sign it, affix postage, and mail it to Selective Service, without the involvement of the postal clerk.
