Purpose of Social Security Number Disclosure
The State University System of Florida operated a system of records prior to January 1, 1975, pursuant to regulations of the Florida Board of Education that required the use of social security numbers. Pursuant to State of Florida Statutes, Chapter 119, Public Records regulations under section 119.071(5) Other Personal Information (a)1a,2a; (II); 3, 4, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University continue to require the disclosure of the social security numbers by applicants and students under the Federal Privacy Act of 1974. This information was, and currently is, received from you for the purpose of identification and verification of student records, including registration, financial aid, and academic records, and of verification of identity in connection with the provision of university services.
Contact your nearest U.S. Social Security Office to apply for a number, if necessary, before submitting your application for admission. (All international students who are eligible to have a Social Security Number need to submit a copy of the social security card).
