State of California Information Practices Act (IPA) of 1977
& Use of Your Social Security Number
State as well as federal law protects the individual’s right to privacy in information pertaining to oneself. The State of California IPA of 1977 requires that the following information be provided to applicants for financial aid who are asked to supply information about them. The principal purpose for requesting information on this form is to determine your eligibility for financial aid. Maintenance of this information is authorized by the Commission policy and the policies of the postsecondary institutions to which you are applying for aid. Furnishing information requested on this form is mandatory. Failure to provide such information will delay and may even prevent your receipt of financial assistance. Information furnished on this form may be transmitted to the state and federal governments if required by law. Individuals have the right of access to records established from information furnished on this form as it pertains to them. The officials responsible for maintaining the information contained of this form are the Executive Director of the Commission and the financial aid administrators at the institutions to which you are applying for financial aid.
The Social Security Number is used to verify your identity under record-keeping systems established prior to January 1, 1975, pursuant to authority of the Commission, the California State University and the California Community Colleges contained in Title 5, California Administrative Code Section 41201, and authority of the Regents of the University of California under Article IX, Section 9 of the California Constitution.
The Commission and California public postsecondary education institutions, in compliance with federal statutes and the Equal Protection Clause of the California Constitution, do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or handicap in any of the policies, procedures, or practices. Inquiries regarding these equal opportunity policies may be directed to the Commission and to the financial aid office of the school or college to which you are applying for aid.
“Excess Awards” means awards issued to eligible applicants after the deadline established by Section 30731 until all available awards are exhausted or the Adjutant General no longer has authority to make awards, which ever is earlier.
