Tax Information (1098-T)

The Bursar's Office is unable to advise you on income tax matters. Please consult your tax adviser/preparer for assistance.

Your Tuition Statement, Form 1098-T, may be accessed online through Fish 'R' Net. You, or the person who claims you as a dependent, may be able to take the tuition and fees deduction or claim an education credit on Form 1040 or 1040A for the qualified tuition and related expenses that were actually paid. For more information about the deduction or credit, see IRS Pub. 970 [pdf], Tax Benefits for Education; IRS Form 8863 [pdf], Education Credits; and the Instructions for Form 1040 or 1040A.

Supplemental information such as payments and loan information can also be viewed on Fish 'R' Net. The Tuition Statement, Form 1098-T, and supplemental information will be mailed by January 31.
