The Use of Social Security Numbers in California Colleges and Universities

Thursday, July 1, 2010

Abstract

The author's stated intention was "to minimize both the collection and storage of [the SSN] at colleges and
universities, given the odds of it being released to unauthorized viewers, by prohibiting the use of all but the last four digits of the SSN and by requiring colleges and universities to discard records and applications after a reasonable period of time if those records contain SSNs along with other pieces of personal information. This report was issued for the California State Legislature.
