Students will not receive a 1098-T if any of the following apply:

  • The student (or parents of dependent students) did not pay qualified educational expenses in the previous tax year.
  • The student received a Promise Grant (which waived their enrollment fees).
  • The student is an international student who does not have a social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN).
