W-9S Request for Taxpayer Identification Number

Western Governors University (WGU) is required, at the federal level, to collect and report accurate tax information on every student. As a result, WGU must get students' correct identifying number to file certain information on returns with the IRS and to furnish a statement to them. For students, this is their social security number (SSN) or, if they are not eligible to obtain a SSN, their individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN). Tax returns that must be filed contain information about qualified tuition and related expenses (Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement).
