What draft??
If there were a draft, you would be the first to be drafted as soon as they found out you dodged it. Worse if they so choose.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

you'll get arrested and a nice fine and posibly jail time. so if that's what you want. Don't sign up. fucurmom101 got my vote.
but then the five years in prison would be good thing to have happen to you.so you could get beat by other inmates.
Since freedom is lost on you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

In the short term, if you're caught not registering, you're subject to fines and jail time. The important thing for most people is, if you don't register and EVER file for a federally funded loan... meaning, Student loans, a mortgage, a federal grant for your business... you will be DENIED federal funding if you didn't register for selective service. FOREVER.

You are subject to fines as high as a quarter of a million dollars and/or 5 years in prison, you won't qualify for Federal student loans or grant programs. This includes Pell Grants, College Work Study, Guaranteed Student/Plus Loans, and National Direct Student Loans. You can forget Federal job training programs as well as Federal government employment.

Then there are the state level prohibitions, such as not being able to get into public colleges and universities, not being able to get a driver's, professional or business license, and not being able to get a job with state, county or local governments.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

You can be denied financial aid for college as well as a renewal on your drivers license.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

All American Males over 18years old are required to register for selective services. Failure to due so leads to fines and jail time. It is also required to receive federal financial aid, and programs. There is no real excuse for not registering.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

curious dad
Right now there is no draft. However, all males must register for the Selective Service by their 18th birthday, it' s a law. The SS is in case a draft is needed, but personally, I don't see that happening. If you do not register, you can be arrested and pay a fine or both. Go to your local post office to register, it's painless.

St. Bastard
Realistically nothing will happen, but you are legally required to register. If you want to apply for any Federal loan (FAFSA for example), join the military or anything like that, they will require you to be signed up to the SS.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Miss Informed
Well first of all, I don't think you "sign up" as much as confirm that your of age to be in the military
Second, and most importantly, there's no draft a'comin'.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

when they get to it , you'll be arrested.
So if you don't that's what will happen.
Your choice
they should come and kick the beans out of you.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

If you don't register for selective service, forget about getting any student loans for college. You probably will not get arrested, but you will be denied for any government programs like federal student loans.

BTW There is no draft, so why not just register?

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

There is no draft. It's the selective service that you have to register with at age 18. If you don't sign up then you can be blocked from getting federal college loans, and grants. You can also be jailed for failure to register.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

in addition to the fine/jail time, you can be turned down for college loans and be refused a passport.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No
