Question
My Social Security Card is not required to be admitted, why do I see the message “Bring in Social Security Card” on my admission checklist?
Answer
You may be asked to bring in your social security card for a few reasons. The most prevalent reason, is because you did not list your Social Security number on your application. We are required by the policies of the University System of Georgia to collect this information. In other cases, we may need to verify that the Social Security number in our system, is indeed your actual Social Security Number.

In both cases, you should bring in your original Social Security Card to the nearest Enrollment and Registration Office. Please note, your card must be signed by you. After making a copy of your card and updating your information in our system, your original card will be returned to you.
