Education Tax Credits (1098-T)

Important notice: Effective January 1, 2018, tax law requires all educational institutions to report payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) in Box 1 of the Form 1098-T.  Scholarships & Grants awarded during the 2018 calendar year will continue to be shown in Box 5.

Families filing a U.S. tax return may be eligible for educational tax credits when claiming their Purdue student as a dependent. In mid-January, the Bursar's Office will generate an IRS Form 1098-T necessary to file for these tax credits. The 1098-T will be provided electronically via the student’s account. Note: Students must authorize their parent/guardian to access the 1098-T form specifically.
