Form 1098-T includes information such as qualified tuition and fees paid, as well as scholarships and grants awarded. The purpose of the form is to help the student and their family compute any tax credit or deduction, for which they may be eligible as outlined in IRS Publication 970.
Wofford does not provide Forms 1098-T to nonresident aliens.
There are several things to keep in mind when reviewing the amounts included in Form 1098-T. Wofford only reports payments received for qualified tuition and fees, which generally exclude all payments for room and board. The payment amount reported for qualified tuition and fees will not exceed Wofford's published cost of attendance amount for tuition and fees. Scholarships and grants are reported based upon the date of final distribution of financial aid.
