Learn about Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers and using them to apply for school.
What Is A Taxpayer ID?
A taxpayer ID refers to the “Individual Taxpayer Identification Number” assigned by the Internal Revenue Service to ensure that all people earning wages in the United States are paying the appropriate amount of tax.
U.S citizens and legal residents are assigned a Social Security Number, those awaiting legal citizenship status can apply for a Taxpayer Identification Number so that they can work in the interim. This number does not affect immigration/citizenship status nor does it constitute work authorization. Learn more about ITINs and immigration here.
ITINs and Education
In the state of California, you can also use your Taxpayer ID number to attend school, which can make a big difference for those who are seeking legal citizenship.
The immigration process in the United States is both, lengthy and expensive. Allowing individuals the opportunity to attend school helps to bridge the gap that many immigrants and normalized citizens face in trying to secure stable, well-paying work.
Though, obtaining an ITIN does not qualify individuals for federal funding such as subsidized signature loans, or pell grants.
New students enrolling at ICOC with an ITIN earn an automatic tuition credit up to $4,250 and are eligible to apply for third-party scholarships.
