I received an e-mail asking me to update my SSN but I do not have one. What should I do?

The University is required to request TIN/SSN to all students that do not have one on file. If you do not have either, you do not need to file an IRS form WS-9. We will put a notation in the system that you do not have one.

This is a yearly requirement and you will continue to receive emails in the future as long as there is not number on file. If at any point during your stay at UC Davis, and you obtain a SSN/TIN you should update your records with us.
