AVOIDING OBSTACLES

Social Security Number 

If the students name and date of birth don't match the Social Security Administration's (SSA) records corrections must be made.  Students should use their legal names on the FAFSA.

If the student has legally changed their name it must be updated with the SSA and a new social security card issued before the hold will be cleared.

Original birth records and social security cards may be required to clear this hold.  Copies are not acceptable.
