Reading the 1098-T Form
Effective 2018, the IRS requires all schools to report “Payments Received” in Box 1. Any payments received and applied to tuition and fees during the calendar year will be included in Box 1. Box 2 (Charges Billed) will be blank.
The information listed on the 1098-T form is final and cannot be modified or updated. If you have questions, please contact your tax preparer. One-Stop Student Services is unable to advise individuals on tax documents or preparation.
Box 1 will also include any payments received in December toward the following spring term tuition and fees.
Aviation Flight Student Cost
Aviation flight costs paid in the calendar year are included in Box 1 of the 1098T with other payments made for tuition and fees.
Enroll Anytime Students
Students enrolled in Self-Paced Enroll-Anytime (correspondence) courses through the Office of Extended Learning will receive a separate paper 1098-T for those courses. This is because the information relating to those courses is housed in a separate database.
Therefore, students enrolled in BOTH regular UND courses and this specific type of Extended Learning course should expect to receive two separate 1098-T's. Students should use both their electronic form in Campus Connection, and the form mailed to them by the Office of Extended learning, when preparing their taxes.
