Add or Update my Social Security Number

Add or Update your Social Security Number

Your Social Security Number is required to receive federal financial aid.

All RISD students who incurred qualified tuition and fees during the calendar year are eligible for a 1098-T form. Reporting to the IRS depends primarily on your SSN, so it is very important for you to have the correct information on file with the college.

To have a correct 1098-T generated, students must have a valid Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax ID number (ITIN) on record with the college.

Questions on how the 1098-T form is prepared should be directed to RISD’s Student Financial Services office. Questions regarding your eligibility should be directed to your tax preparer. More information about educational credits can be found at
