Mock Social Security Number Procedure For International Students

Canadian Students:

International and Canadian students are assigned an "unofficial" social security number by SVSU offices. Undergraduate Canadian students are handled by Undergraduate Admissions.

Undergraduate Canadian students are mailed this number by Undergraduate Admissions prior to orientation so they can use the password change routine.

Canadian students who have forgotten their social security number may come in-person to the Support Center, Office of International Programs (OIP), Undergraduate Admissions, Graduate Admissions or the College of Education Admissions and Certification Office and present picture ID to receive the last 4 digits of their social security number. Any requests to receive social security numbers via phone or email will be denied and the student referred to Undergraduate Admissions if they want to pursue that avenue further. NOTE - if a Canadian student obtains an "official" social security number, they need to visit the Registrar's Office to have the "unofficial" number replaced.
