Gettysburg College is required to provide students with a 1098T form if they were enrolled at least part-time for academic credit. The information on the 1098 T can be used to claim the Education Credits (American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credit) on a federal tax return.
Interpreting the 1098 T
- Box 2 (Amounts billed for qualified tuition expenses): The total amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses less any related reductions in charges. This is the tuition posted to the Gettysburg College Student Account during the calendar year.
- Box 5 (Scholarships or grants): The total of all scholarships or grants administered and processed by Gettysburg College during the calendar year.
When the amount in Box 5 is more the amount in Box 2, the “difference” may need to be included on the student’s federal tax return in the "Wages, salaries and tips" question as well as on the FAFSA as "Taxable student grant and scholarship aid reported to the IRS in your adjusted gross income.
