What type of visa do you have? if you're under your parents then no way in heaven you can get SSN, but if your paperwork and current visa is up-to-date then you can change status. Apply for student visa.. then you will get everything.. SNN etc.. BUT in order to work (in the school) you need to have an authorization, for that the school can help you. Just follow the rules.
First find out about your visa and if you're legally here (from your parents) and then go to your school and find out everything you got to come up with in order to apply for that F1 visa. Move quickly because there is a timeline for that type of registration in schools.
