Notification of Tax Identification Numbers (TIN) or Social Security Numbers (SSN) Required Collection & Usage:
Federal legislation relating to the Hope Tax Credit and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 1098T production mandates that all colleges report student SSN or TIN numbers to the IRS. This IRS mandate requires colleges to collect the SSN or TIN. A student may refuse to disclose his or her SSN or TIN to the IRS but the IRS is then authorized to fine the student in the amount of $50.

West Valley College does not use the SSN or TIN as student identifier- we assign a unique student ID to every student.

All SSNs and TINs collected as mandated are protected by federal regulations under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Your success is our top priority and we look forward to being part of your future.
