Presently all of the Mid-State Technical College's student
record systems rely on the Social Security number (SSN) to track student
records. Providing the College with a valid Social Security number is the best
way to ensure that your student records are properly maintained. When you
enroll, transfer credits, request transcripts, or have any information sent
from other institutions to the College, the primary means for connecting these
pieces of information with your records is the Social Security number.
If you apply for federal Financial Aid, you must provide
Mid-State your SSN in order to have your grants and loans dispersed to you. If
you or your parents plan to take a tax credit for tuition paid you must provide
Your SSN will be treated as a confidential piece of information,
similar to student or employee records. If you would rather not provide your
Social Security number, you may visit any Mid-State campus and complete a
paper, hard-copy application. However, this could delay your application processing.
