The United States government issues a nine-digit Social Security number (SSN) to identify each US citizen, permanent resident and temporary resident.

If you are an international student who does not have an SSN, we will assign you a unique number that you can enter in the SSN field on all of your application and loan documents.

Please note that this number:
  1. Does not take the place of any SSN, INS number, Tax ID or other number assigned by the US government; and
  2. Does not represent any legal authority to remain in the US

You must notify us immediately if you obtain a Social Security number, so we can update your account.

Please choose three security questions and enter answers that only you know. Pick answers you can easily remember. These questions will be used to verify your identity when your account is accessed. All fields are required. Use letters, numbers and spaces only. Do not use special characters or punctuation (e.g., periods, commas, dashes, apostrophes). Answers must have a minimum of 2 characters and be different for each of the three questions. If any of your answers are the same, select a different question.
