Apply for SSN/ITIN
Apply for Social Security Number/Individual Taxpayer Identification Number
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that we include either a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) for each student we report. If you receive notification from Student Financial Services that we do not have your SSN or ITIN, please supply it to us. See below to determine if you qualify for a SSN or need to apply for an ITIN.
Determine Your Eligibility
You can apply for a SSN if you are employed at the University or have an offer to work on campus. Determine your eligibility or contact:
