You have to be in a club that is a US Chess affiliate that holds rated tournaments.

One example is the USChess - Members Only Club but there are a lot of other affiliates running events.

Sorry, I mean I want to play in USCF. My previous message is a terrible example of English grammar for people learning English.

I saw somewhere about USCF-rated games on Chess.com only counting toward a "USCF Online Rating"...what if one only has an OTB rating from years ago??

Online ratings are initialized based on existing ITB ratings and that gets used in the rating formula.
