** University system social security number (SSN) disclosure consent statement

To comply with the Tax Payer Relief Act of 1997, Western Oregon University must obtain your correct social security number (SSN) to file returns with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and to furnish a statement to you. The returns filed by WOU must contain information about qualified tuition and related expenses.

The Privacy Act of 1974, section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code, requires that you give your correct SSN to agencies that must file information returns with the IRS. The IRS uses your SSN for identification and to verify the accuracy of your tax return. For more information, please refer to Internal Revenue Code section 6050S. By signing the application for admission, you give your permission for the use of your SSN to assist WOU in developing, validating or administering predictive tests and assessments; administering student aid programs; improving instruction; identifying students internally; collecting student debts; or comparing student educational experiences with subsequent work-force experiences.

When conducting studies, WOU will disclose your SSN only in a manner that does not permit personal identification of you by individuals other than representatives of WOU and only if the information is destroyed when no longer needed for the purposes for which the study was conducted. By providing your SSN, you are consenting to the uses identified above.

This request is made pursuant to the Oregon Revised Statutes 351.070 and 351.085. You are not required to consent to the use of your SSN for research; if you choose not to do so, you will not be denied any right, benefit or privilege provided by law. You may revoke your consent for the use of your SSN at any time by writing to Admissions. If you do not give consent to use your SSN for research, please attach a note requesting a system-generated number.
