College of DuPage must obtain your correct identifying number to file Form 1098-T with the IRS and to furnish a statement to you. This will be your Social Security Number (SSN) or, if you are not eligible to obtain an SSN, your Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). If you do not submit your SSN or ITIN, you will not be denied access to the College; however, you may be subject to IRS civil penalties of $50 for failing to furnish a correct SSN or ITIN.
If your SSN or ITIN is not on file with the College, complete the Request for Student's Taxpayer Identification Number Form (Substitute IRS Form W-9S). Submit the completed form to the Cashier's Office no later than December 15. The form may be submitted in person to the Cashier's Office, located in Berg Instructional Center (BIC), Room 2424, or mailed. Do not email the form.
