WGU asks its applicants to provide either their Social Security Numbers or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to a) facilitate the federal financial aid application process, and b) to provide important education tax credit information for you.
You are not required to provide your Social Security Number or your Individual Taxpayer Identification Number to apply for admission to GUI. If you choose not to provide these numbers, please enter a series of zeros in the required fields. However, you should understand that failing to provide at least one of these identifiers might mean that GUI cannot provide certain important services, such as Financial Aid.
If you are a non-U.S. citizen, you may obtain a U.S. Social Security Number if you have permission to work in the U.S. For more information, please visit http://www.socialsecurity.gov.
If you are a non-U.S. citizen who is ineligible for a Social Security Number but are still required to file a U.S. tax return, you should instead apply for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. For information, please visit http://www.irs.gov/individuals/article/0,,id=96287,00.html
WGU requires the name on your academic record to match the records of the Social Security Administration (SSA). If your name has recently changed and no longer matches the records of the SSA, please download, complete, and submit the SSA's "Form SS-5," available here:

Unfortunately, we have discovered that we cannot always guarantee that the educational experience for students living outside the United States will meet our high standards for quality and convenience. It is our expectation that these issues will be resolved in future years. We wish you well in your educational pursuits and regret that we cannot help you at this time.
