NOTE: Gallaudet University cannot provide you or your tax advisor with tax advice.  You need to contact your tax preparer to determine eligibility for the credits and how to calculate them.

Gallaudet University is required to provide the (amounts paid) and (scholarship or grant) figures to help you determine the amount of qualified expenses you can claim on your IRS Form 8863. You will need a review your payment records to determine the actual qualified expenses paid. Remember that qualified amounts paid by student loans may count as payments eligible for these purposes. Scholarships and grants received may reduce your eligible payment amounts. See IRS Publication 970 for information to determine your qualified expenses paid amount. The 1098-T forms will be available online on January 31, 2022. To receive your 1098T online, you must opt-in to receiving electronic statements only.
