Privacy Act Notice & your Social Security Number
Your Social Security Number can help expedite enrollment and financial aid, but is not required.
The University confidentially maintains all application information, including your Social Security Number, which is used routinely to facilitate document matching, verify your identity, and expedite your enrollment and financial aid. Disclosure of your Social Security Number is voluntary, but failure to provide your Social Security Number may result in delay and confusion regarding your identity, and once admitted, could result in delay or loss of federal and state financial aid, tax credits, student loan deferments, veteran benefits, and other benefits under law.
Please note that the application is only valid for the semester in which you apply. If you do not attend classes for the term in which you applied, you must submit another admissions application and fee to be considered for a subsequent semester.
Making false or misleading statements on the application or failing to list all institutions attended may result in cancellation of admission status and/or loss of credit.
Admission requirements, deadlines, and fees are subject to change without prior notice.
All documents submitted to the University of Utah become its property and will not be released to students or other institutions. Admission applications and transcripts are destroyed after one year for students who do not attend.
