Important Changes to 1098-T Reporting Process

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

Depending on student income (or family income, if a dependent), whether the student was considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of qualified educational expenses for the year, students may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (Detailed information about claiming education tax credits can be found in IRS Publication 970 page 9.)

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

Rowan University is unable to provide individual tax advice, but should assistance be needed, we advise that students seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.


1098-T Information

What is the 1098-T form?

1098-T form is the information return that colleges and universities are required to issue for the purpose of determining a student's eligibility for the American Opportunity Credit and Lifetime Learning education tax credits. Rowan University reports payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses, prior year adjustments, and grants and scholarships.

For more information, please go to Tax & 1098T Info on our web page, or contact us at bursar@rowan.edu or (856) 256-4150.
