Questions about privacy rights may be directed to the Dean of Continuing Education at (310) 243-3737 or the Vice President for Student Affairs at (310) 243-3784.

Use of Social Security Number
Students are required to provide the University with their correct social security numbers (individual taxpayer identification numbers) pursuant to the authority contained in Section 41201, Title 5, California Code of Regulations, and Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code. The University uses the social security number to identify records pertaining to the student and, if needed, to collect debts owed the University. Also, the Internal Revenue Service requires the University to file information returns that include the student’s social security number and other information such as the amount paid for qualified tuition, related expenses, and interest on educational loans. That information is used to help determine whether a student, or a person claiming a student as a dependent, may take a credit or deduction to reduce federal income taxes. Students who do not have a social security number at the time of enrollment will be required to obtain a social security number and submit it to the University within sixty days. Failure to furnish a correct social security number may result in the imposition of a penalty by the Internal Revenue Service. Important Tax Credit Information If you are enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program or are taking courses to acquire or improve job skills, you may qualify for a Hope Scholarship or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. The Hope Scholarship tax credit is available only to students in their first two years of postsecondary education who are enrolled at least half-time in an eligible program. The tax credits are based on the amount of qualified tuition and fees, less grants and other tax-free educational assistance and the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income. Hope credits apply to fees paid after December 31, 1997. The Lifetime Learning Tax Credit is available to students at all educational and enrollment levels who are enrolled at an eligible educational institution. As with the Hope Scholarship tax credit, this opportunity is based on the amount of qualified tuition and fees, less grants and other tax-free educational assistance and the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income. The Lifetime Learning credit applies to fees paid after June 30, 1998. Consult IRS Publication 970 or your tax preparer for additional information on both programs.
