Social Security Numbers
The University of Utah Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid will use Social Security Numbers to verify your identity and match data. You are not required to provide your Social Security Number when completing your application for admission to the University, however it is a critical data element used in our processes. Our ability to determine your eligibility for both Financial Aid and Scholarships will be severely restricted if your Social Security number is not provided in the Application for Admission. Omission of your Social Security Number may eliminate you from consideration for scholarship funding.
Students are required by state law to certify that they are eligible to receive a scholarship as a U.S. citizen or a citizen of another country who is lawfully present in the U.S. If students do not know whether they are in the U.S. lawfully, they should seek the advice of an immigration attorney before submitting a scholarship application.
Prior to the disbursement of any scholarship, the University of Utah is required by law to verify the recipient's citizenship status or lawful presence in the U.S. with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Once the University submits a student's information to DHS for verification, this federal agency may have the legal right to share the information with other government agencies.
