Use of the University’s Employer Identification Number (EIN)
The Employer Identification Number (EIN) commonly referred to as the Tax ID number is a nine-digit number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service for tax filing and reporting purposes. It is a unique identifier, similar to a social security number for an individual.
The University EIN is used to identify the business activities of the University. Although the EIN is public record, and as such is not secured, its use is restricted to official University purposes. No affiliated organization of the University may use the University EIN for any purpose, without prior authorization from the University's Tax Compliance Officer. Registered Student Organizations' (RSOs) are distinct from the University and are unable to use the University's EIN number. Inquires regarding RSO's usage of EINs should be directed to the Office of Student Activities.
Inquiries regarding the use of the University's EIN, by those other than RSOs, should be directed to the Tax Compliance Officer.
