BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

❏ Social security number verification -The Internal Revenue Service requires East Carolina University to verify social security numbers (SSN) annually for accurate tax reporting on 1098-T forms. Having an accurate SSN on tax forms supports the tax deduction that a student or family may claim for qualified educational expenses on both federal and state income tax returns. Failure to provide ECU with a SSN may result in the student being fined in accordance with Internal Revenue Code Section 6723. 

Download the FAQ and follow the instructions to verify your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
