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.

  1. Look for an email from 1098@eforms.uwsa.edu between January 1–31 (this email probably went to your students @uwm.edu address)
  2. The email will include a Certificate Number and a link to the GetMyDocument.com verification page
  3. Copy and paste your Certificate Number into the page, verifying your information is correct
  4. The Document Inbox will include the current 1098-T
  5. Previous years will be in the Archived folder
  6. Click the document link to view and print a PDF file

To view or print your previous 1098-T forms any other time throughout the year, go to GetMyDocument.com and request a Certificate.
