2016 1098-T Tax Statement
Posted on November 01, 2016
Education tax credits may be available to you if you are paying education costs for yourself or a student who is a member of your immediate family. Form 1098-T enables you to determine if you qualify for one or more of these education tax credits. View additional information.
Drexel University is required to provide a 1098-T to enrolled students by January 31, 2017. Please note that only students whose tuition charges exceed the amount of scholarships and grants they received in the 2016 tax year will receive a 2016 1098-T Form.
We strongly encourage all students to select to receive their 2016 1098-T Forms electronically. Electronic delivery is more timely and efficient for you and your parents to receive this important tax information. To sign up for electronic delivery, please complete the following no later than January 13, 2017:
- Log in to DrexelOne.
- Select the "Billing and Financial Aid" tab.
- Select the "1098-T Tax Information" link under the "Payment and Refund Information" channel.
- Select "Yes, I will receive my 1098T electronically."
Students who do not sign up for electronic delivery will receive a paper 1098-T, mailed to their current mailing address as it appears in DrexelOne, postmarked by January 31, 2017. Students who do not choose to receive their 1098-T by mail should ensure that their address is correct and make any necessary updates no later than January 13, 2017:
- Log in to DrexelOne.
- Select the "Academics" tab.
