How to Obtain Your IRS Form 1098-T

Colleges and universities use Form 1098-T to report information about tuition, fees, scholarships, and grants posted to a student's account to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. The reported information is used to determine eligibility for educational tax credits such as the American Opportunity Credit. For more information on tax benefits for education, review Publication 970 on the IRS website at

In addition, NSU is required to provide each eligible student with a copy of their Form 1098-T on an annual basis. This form is informational only and serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. A copy of Form 1098-T is furnished to students every January.

Please note that the enrollment information, by itself, does not establish eligibility for either credit or deduction.
