The Form 1098-T is a statement that colleges and universities are required to issue to certain students. It provides the total dollar amount paid by the student for what is referred to as qualified tuition and related expenses (or “QTRE”) in a single tax year.

To access or reprint your 1098-T Education Tax Credit form and/or set your preference for delivery of the form:

  • First, you need to determine if you have elected to receive financial information online – this is called ECONSENT.
  • If you have said NO to e-consent, your 1098-T will be delivered by US Mail by January 31 and the following will not apply.
  • If you said YES to e-consent, please read on.

Visit the Office of the University Registrar for additional information about eConsent and how to agree or disagree.

Important notice: Effective January 1, 2018, tax law requires all educational institutions to report payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) in Box 1 of the Form 1098-T.  Scholarships & Grants awarded during the 2018 calendar year will continue to be shown in Box 5.
