Social Security Card - Social security numbers are voluntary. However, the lack of a Social Security number will result in the denial of the HOPE scholarship. Students who enroll without a Social Security card (for example, international students, those who sign the waiver, etc.) will be issued a number by the school system, beginning with the numbers 999-.
