IRS Form 1098-T Tuition Statement
The 1098-T tax form is a statement of qualified tuition and fees charged by the Portland State University. It is provided to the student for tax purposes as well as reported and filed with the IRS*. As an eligible educational institution, PSU is required by law to provide 1098-T Tuition Statements to students who were enrolled in courses at PSU during the calendar year. The 1098-T tax form contains qualified tuition and related expenses billed to the student by PSU during the calendar year. It also contains the amount of scholarships or grants applied to the student account during the calendar year.
*Qualified tuition and related expenses are defined by the IRS as “tuition and fees a student must pay to be enrolled at or attend an eligible educational institution.”
1098-T Information Reported
The IRS requires each eligible educational institution to report payments received (Box 1) or amounts billed (Box 2) for qualified educational expenses. The majority of colleges and universities, including PSU, elect to report amounts billed for qualified educational expenses.
The features on the 1098-T form are as follows:

- Box 6. Adjustments to Scholarships or Grants for a Prior Year: This box is used to report reductions to scholarships or grants posted to your account during the current tax year but reported in full on a previous tax year.
- Box 7. Checkbox for Amounts for an Academic Period Beginning in January through March of 2_ _ _ (the following calendar year): This box will be checked if qualified tuition and related expenses are billed in one year, but the academic period begins January through March of the following year. Example: Winter term charges are billed in December but classes begin in January.

Check if a Graduate Student: This box will be checked if the student was a graduate student, if the student was enrolled in a program or programs leading to a graduate-level degree, if the student was pursuing a graduate level certificate, or if other recognized graduate level educational credentials were recorded..
