An employed international student may apply for a Social Security card. If you do not have a job or job offer, you cannot apply for a Social Security number.
International students must wait two full weeks from their date of entry into the U.S. before applying for a card at the Social Security office in Columbia. Applications that are submitted earlier than two weeks after the arrival date will be subject to additional delays of six weeks to three months. Applying early will significantly increase the time it will take to receive a Social Security number (SSN).
The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires international students requesting a Social Security number to verify their identity, visa status and employment.
You will then take all of these documents to the Social Security Office. The Columbia Social Security office is located at:
803 Gray Oak Drive
The Social Security Administration provides more information about Social Security numbers for international students.
