Information About the 1098-T

The 1098-T Tuition Statement is an informational return that educational institutions are required to issue to each student who is enrolled and for whom a reportable transaction is made.

The 1098-T provides tax information to both the taxpayer and the IRS, which may be useful in determining eligibility for tax credits and/or deductions. Either the student or the person who claims the student as a dependent may be eligible for tax credits and/or deductions on his/her individual income tax return for qualified tuition and related expenses.

Please note that the 1098-T may not provide all of the information you need to determine eligibility, and you will also need your personal financial records. Eligibility for any tax benefit depends upon your individual facts and circumstances. The University cannot provide tax advice. Please consult the IRS or a tax professional to find out more about education credits and deductions and your eligibility. You may also refer to this document for additional information.

Refund Policy

A student finding it necessary to withdraw from the university must officially withdraw through the Registrar's Office. This official withdrawal must be completed before the Business Office can give any consideration for a refund. The Business Office adheres to the refund guidelines established in the University catalog.

Failure to attend class or simply notifying an individual instructor or other University personnel of interest to withdraw is not regarded as an official withdrawal.

Refunds of credit balances on student accounts will be made only after financial aid has been posted and the account is paid in full.

Payment Policies

All accounts must be paid in full before a student will receive a diploma or a transcript, or be permitted to register for subsequent semester(s). In the event it becomes necessary to place a student account in the hands of an agency for collection, the student will be responsible for all collection costs, including legal fees. If there are any questions regarding financial arrangements, please call the Business Office. Receipts will be required for resolution of account discrepancies.
