The admissions office will provide you with a valid student number for the processing of your application. Your U.S. Social Security number is needed in order to match your record with all required official documents (transcripts, test scores, and residency). If you are planning on receiving Financial Aid (FAFSA, Bright Futures and Florida Pre-paid), your U.S Social Security number is required. Consistent with Section 119.071(5),Florida Statutes, FAU collects social security numbers only as specifically authorized by law or is imperative for the performance of our duties and responsibilities. Under 26 USC §6050S, the IRS makes it necessary for FAU to collect the SSN of every student. If a student refuses to disclose his or her SSN for this purpose, he or she may be subject to IRS penalties.
