The College sends IRS Form 1098-T to the student's permanent home address prior to January 31 of each year. This form reflects the amount billed or adjusted for tuition and related fees (not room and board) to the student for the tax/calendar year. It also reflects the amount of scholarship/grant awarded or adjusted to the student for that same tax year.
The IRS also requires the College to obtain the student's taxpayer identification number (social security number - SSN or individual taxpayer identification number - ITIN) to file the 1098-T form. If your student is notified by the Student Accounts Office to complete the IRS form W9-S, please access the IRS website listed above and download the form W9-S. Complete PART 1 of the form and sign the form to serve as verification. Please return the completed form to the Student Accounts Office, PO Box 1773 Carlisle, PA 17013-2896; by fax to (717) 245-1850; or email to Student Accounts. You may also call the office between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday by dialing (717) 245-1953.
IRS Form 1098-E is sent to students/parents with educational loans from loan servicing agencies. This form lists the interest paid for the tax year for educational loans. Although this interest may be deductible, lending institutions are not required to send them out if the interest amount is less than $600.00 for the tax/calendar year.
