You will receive your census forms in the mail this week (week of March 15). In addition to the fact that filling out a census form is a constitutional requirement to ensure fair federal representation and taxation, census data is used to equitably distribute federally funded program dollars including student financial aid. The 2010 census form has ten questions and should take no more than 10 minutes to finish. It may not be filled out electronically. Fill it out as soon as you get it and ask your advisor or student body representative how your university is collecting the forms. All information is confidential.
