Student Financial Accounts > IRS Form 1098-T
Eligible colleges and/or other post-secondary institutions must send the Tax Form 1098-T to any student who paid "qualified educational expenses" in the preceding tax year. Qualified educational expenses include tuition, any fees that are required for enrollment, and course materials the student was required to buy from the school.
Please note that there are exceptions to the distribution process and that the university may not be required to prepare Form 1098-T for every student even if they paid for qualified educational expenses. For more information on eligibility see below.

The Tax Relief Act of 1997 may provide you with an opportunity for tax savings through the Hope Scholarship Credit (American Opportunity Tax Credit) and the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. These two tax credits are based on payments made for tuition and certain related educational costs. If you have questions about how to compute your education tax credit, you should consult your tax professional or refer to the IRS. DePaul University is not able to provide tax advice, but the following are links to further information on 1098-T forms and tax credits:
Nothing in the language above should be interpreted to be tax advice. If you have any questions regarding your particular tax situation, including what education-related deductions and/or credits for which you may be eligible, the university recommends you consult with a qualified tax professional.
