Why do students need to submit their Social Security Number?
The Institute for Academic Outreach must use students’ social security numbers to generate tax forms in order to document tuition for tax filing purposes and students are required to submit their Social Security Number either on their application or via their student account before their transcripts will be released. The tax form benefits students’ parents when they go to file their annual tax returns. Truman is required by the IRS to obtain this information. All information is kept securely and is not shared with anyone outside the appropriate offices.
