SECTION 2: (Requires dates and supporting documentation)
This section is for explaining and documenting why you did not register with Selective Service. This
section consists of five different parts. You must complete and submit documentation for any and all parts
that apply to you.
To obtain proof of military service (DD-214, Official Military Personnel File) write to: National Personnel

Incarcerated, institutionalized, hospitalized, or home confined:
For each instance, provide type of confinement, dates of confinement, and supporting documentation.
Non-Citizen / Non-Immigrants:
If you entered the United States for the first time after your 26th birthday, you must provide documentation to
support your claim. Valid documentation includes: entry stamp in your passport, I-94 with entry stamp on it. If you
entered the United States illegally after your 26th birthday, you must provide proof that you were not living in the
United States from age 18 to age 26. Please note: your Resident Alien Card (Green Card) is not proof of entry to
the United States.
If you entered the United States as a valid non-immigrant, and remained in that status to your 26th birthday, you
must provide documentation to support your claim. For example, if you entered the United States as an F-1 student,
and remained in that status until your 26th birthday, you would need to provide documentation indicating that you
were admitted on an F-1 visa and attended school full-time as required. (Acceptable documents for this situation
include copies of your I-20s or a letter from the school you attended indicating your full time attendance as a non-
immigrant). The same thing applies for all non-immigrant statuses. You must explain, if at any point, you violated
the terms of your visa, or overstayed your visa and became an undocumented immigrant.
You should provide as much information as possible. We will use the information you provide to determine your
registration status. A list of documents to provide can be found at:
