Ask Keri: Getting A 1098-T Form

How do I or my student go about getting a copy of my student’s 1098-T form from UWM?

It’s tax season and getting a tuition statement and other financial documents is important before filing your taxes.

Your 1098-T form includes the total dollar amount of qualified tuition less remission billed to you in a calendar year. It may help you determine your eligibility for certain education tax credits.

Obtaining a 1098-T form is a straightforward process and UWM’s One Stop Student Services has instructions for students.

If you are not able to access your 1098-T, a hard copy of the 1098-T will be mailed to the mailing address of record on your PAWS account by the end of January.  Please note that with it being mailed by the end of January, you will receive it in early February.

If you or your student have questions you can contact the Cashier’s Office at bursar@uwm.edu or 414-229-4601.
