1098T Tax Forms

Overview

All students enrolled and billed for qualifying tuition and related expenses for a calendar year are sent a 1098-T tax form from Clark University by the end of January in the next calendar year. In order to provide this information the student would need to have their social security number on their student record kept by the Registrar. If we do not have your social security number and you would like to receive a form 1098-T, please click here to complete the Social Security Number Update Form.

NEW!  2018 Change to Reporting Requirements

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.

Clark University is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

NEW! How do I obtain my 1098T?

Clark University has now partnered with Heartland ECSI to provide students the ability to easily access and view their 1098-T forms online at https://heartland.ecsi.net/. Through the use of their tax document search, students will need their first and last name, social security number, and home zip code to access their form. The information needed to access a student’s 1098-T form must match the information provided by the student to Clark University in order to pass authentication. Please note: Neither Clark University nor Heartland ECSI can answer tax questions or provide tax advice, you must contact your tax professional.
