Selective Service Registration (E-60)
Original Implementation: October 26, 1999
Last Revision: April 19, 2011
Effective September 1, 1999 all male citizens/nationals from eighteen up to twenty-six years of age must provide proof of registration or proof of exemption from registration with the selective service system prior to beginning employment with Stephen F. Austin State University. Please note that the age requirement is up to the individual's 26th birthday. Upon attaining the 26th year of age, the registration verification process is no longer applicable.
This verification requirement is applicable to all categories of employees including faculty and student employees, staff employees, and temporary and casual employees.
The registration requirement does not apply to a person employed by SFA before September 1, 1999 as long as the person's employment by SFA is continuous. The following persons are exempt from the requirement to register:
- Lawfully admitted non-immigrant aliens on visas (such as those men on visitor or student visas and members of diplomatic or trade missions and their families) because they are residing in this country temporarily.
- Members of the Armed Forces on full-time active duty, including cadets and midshipmen at the United State service academies.
- All males who have reached age 26.
The following guidelines should be followed for the employment process:
- Any offer of employment is considered conditional until proof of registration is documented.
- This information will be gathered by the Department of Human Resources during the new employee orientation process. At that time, the data is entered in a government database and if the individual is not registered, he must do so immediately in order to be eligible for state employment.
