Qualified Charges

Please note that per IRS guidelines, a 1098T form is generated only when qualified charges are larger than scholarships or grants. Qualified charges include tuition and activity fees; personal expenses such as room and board, or student health insurance are not considered qualified expenses. If your charges are not higher than scholarships and/or grants, you will not receive a 1098T.

1098T forms will not be generated for graduated seniors in the calendar year of graduation as qualified charges were billed in the prior calendar year.

If you have additional questions, please contact ECSI.
