1098T Tax Form

What Is a 1098T Tax Form?

The IRS 1098T Tax Form is the tuition statement that indicates the total amount paid for tuition and fees for the entire calendar year.

Who Is Eligible to Receive This Form?

Students who make out-of-pocket payments toward their tuition for a particular calendar year are eligible to receive a 1098T form.

However, you will not be eligible for a 1098-T for a particular calendar year if you have:

  • received grants, scholarships, or third-party payments that meet or exceed your total tuition amount for the entire calendar year, or
  • made payments during a different calendar year.

How Can I Access My 1098T Form?

You may access and print your 1098T form directly from your CUNYfirst account by following these steps:

  1. Log in to CUNYfirst
  2. Select Student Center.
  3. Select Financial Account tile.
  4. Select 1098T in the available menu (ensure your pop-up blocker for the CUNYfirst site is disabled to allow the report to appear).
  5. If you do not see the year for the form you are looking for, you may not be eligible for a 1098T Form for that year (see eligibility information above).
