Form 1098-T, Tuition Statement

Chattahoochee Tech logo

Eligible educational institutions file 1098-T forms for each credit student who has charges and payments for a given calendar year (tax year). The Technical College System of GA has changed the reporting method. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with year 2018, colleges must report in Box 1 the amount of qualified tuition and related expenses (or “QTRE”) you paid during the year.

Sample 1098-T Form

1098-T forms for the tax year will be mailed out by January 31 per IRS requirements. Eligible students may visit the 1098-T FAQ for instructions on how to access the 1098-T form.

Neither the Student Accounts Office staff nor other Chattahoochee Technical College staff serves in roles as tax professionals in any way. We are unable to offer advice as to whether or not you have to file the form on your personal income tax return. Too, we are unable to determine how filing the information will or will not help your tax situation.

Who should not expect a Form 1098-T for the year?

  • Students whose qualified tuition and related expenses are entirely waived or were paid entirely with grants/scholarships.
  • Payments for courses offering no academic credit– even if the student is otherwise enrolled in a degree, diploma, or certificate program.
  • Enrolled student is a non-resident alien or non-US citizen (unless requested by the student).
