Admissions Collection and Use of Social Security Number-In compliance with Florida Statute 119.071(5), Florida State College at Jacksonville issues this notification regarding the purpose of the collection and use of Social Security numbers. Florida State College will collect Social Security Numbers (SSN) if specifically required by law to do so, or if necessary for the performance of the College’s duties and responsibilities. The College takes appropriate measures to secure SSNs from unauthorized access and does not release SSNs to other parties, except as required to fulfill the College’s duties and responsibilities. A student may refuse to disclose his or her SSN to the College, but the IRS is then authorized to fine the student $50. Additional information related to the use of social security numbers can be found in the Student Rights and Responsibilities  section of the College catalog.
