Corrected 1098T Forms
The 1098T forms distributed in January did not include scholarship or grant information in Box 1 and are incorrect for use. Corrected 1098T tuition statements are available online, and a copy will be mailed to your address on file with the Registrar's office.
To access your corrected 1098T tuition statement for the 2018 tax year, visit the Vangent TRA Pearson website. If you have not set up a user ID and password, select “First Time Students.” The top of the 1098T form will have a "corrected" box checked. Students who have filed their 2018 taxes should compare the tax return information with the corrected Box 1 amount. If an amended tax return is to be filed, you may do so by visiting the IRS website.
