Student Identification Number

UTSA assigns a student identification number to all students. While a student’s Social Security number is requested at the time of admission, under the provisions of the Federal Privacy Act of 1974, a student is not required to provide the Social Security number. Although providing the Social Security number is voluntary at the time of admission, some students who do not provide it initially may be required to do so later in order to meet federal and state financial aid and other fiscal requirements.
