I have been assigned a generic number for my ASU student ID number. Why are you still asking for my Social Security number?

Under the terms of the federal Education Tax Credits legislation, ASU is required to provide tuition and fee payment information annually to the IRS. Your SSN is required for this reporting, even if you use a non-SSN student ID number and you will claim neither the Hope Scholarship tax credit nor the Lifetime Learning tax credit. Additionally, if you apply for financial assistance of any type (grants, loans, scholarships, etc.), you will be required to submit your SSN with that application.
