Commonly Asked Questions regarding Form 1098-T
Will I receive a 1098-T if my tuition and fees
were covered by financial aid?
If your tuition and fees were covered by TAP and PELL, you will
not receive a 1098-T. However, if loans were used to pay your tuition and
fees, you will receive a 1098-T.
Will my 1098-T include payments I made in 2012
for semesters that began prior to 2012?
No. Only payments made in a calendar year for semesters that began
in the calendar year are reported on the 1098-T.
What about payments I made in 2012 for Winter
2013 or Spring 2013?

2013 prior to December 31, 2012, these payments will be reported on your 1098-T
If I received a 1098-T, am I qualified to
receive one of the educational tax credits?
Receipt of a 1098-T does not automatically qualify you to receive
