What Is the Requirement?

Colorado state law requires that students who were assigned male at birth and are between the ages of 17 years, 9 months and 25 years old must certify that they've registered with the U.S. Selective Service System before they're allowed to enroll in classes at a state-supported institution (Colorado Senate Bill 03-255).

  • If you're between the ages of 17 years, 9 months and 18 years, you must complete early registration.
  • If you're between the ages of 18 and 26, even if you're a conscientious objector, you must complete your registration (Colorado House Bill 1021, effective July 1, 1987).

For more information, see the Selective Service System's Who Must Register page.

Changing Your Gender Marker

MTF-spectrum identifying and transitioning students who are still legally male will need to register in the same way as anyone else legally male. For FTM-spectrum identifying and transitioning students, you must register as soon as possible after you change your gender marker at the university. For more information, see the Center for Inclusion and Social Change's Legal Name/Gender Change page.

What You Need To Do

To fulfill this requirement, two steps must be completed by the sixth Wednesday of the term. Failure to submit this form will result in a hold being placed on your account, preventing you from enrolling in classes. Conscientious objectors are still required to register with the Selective Service System.

Step One: Register Online with Selective Service

  • Go to the Selective Service website.
  • Click Register, then Register Online.
  • Complete and submit the form.

Step Two: Verify Your Registration in MyCUInfo

  • Log in to MyCUInfo.
  • Under Other Academic Services (bottom of page), click Selective Service Form.
  • Complete and submit the form.

Office of the Registrar staff will manually remove the hold from your account one business day after you complete step two.
