For college students, is your college/university still using the Social Security # as a personal identifier?

Is it listed on your transcript, grade reports, or other document issued by the school?

    No, most Universities and colleges use a student ID code. However your personal documents and transcripts will have both codes because one is your student ID and the other (SS#) is your government personal identifier.

    No. The college I attend issues a student number that is used for identification purposes.

  3. John Scott Says:

    No. We are given student ID numbers for all that stuff.

    No, MDC switched out awhile ago…they were slow to do it

    Ours was using our SSN until about 2 years ago… we usually had to write our number on scantrons that were passed around the classroom so anyone could write them down and use them. I’m glad most schools are thinking of student’s security and protection nowadays.

    My old university did but it was never shown on any formal document.
