Who Received This Email?
We sent this email at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 23, 2023, to students who had a Selective Service hold on their record.

Dear [first],

A hold has been placed on your record because you didn't complete one or both steps of the Selective Service registration requirement by 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 22, 2023.

This hold will remain on your record and prevent you from registering for classes until you complete the steps below.

What You Need to Do

Complete the following steps as soon as possible.

  1. Register with the U.S. Selective Service System.

    1. Go to the Selective Service registration page.

    2. Scroll down, then complete and submit the registration form. (If you’re not yet 18 years old please complete the form and indicate that you are not yet 18. Colorado law requires that you verify your registration.)

  2. Submit the verification form to CU.

    1. Follow this link to Buff Portal's Selective Service card (you may be prompted to log in).
      Note: If you have trouble accessing the site, try using a private or incognito browser window.
    2. On the card, select "Tell CU you've registered."
    3. Complete and submit the Selective Service verification form.

If everything is in order, we'll remove this hold one business day after you complete step two.
