Available in My Finances
1098-T forms for the previous calendar (tax) year will be available in My Finances no later than January 31. Students can log in to view and print the form to provide it, if applicable, to those eligible to claim them as a dependent. Forms will not be mailed and, per FERPA regulations, UD can only provide 1098-T forms directly to students.
The forms will only be available to students who meet the following criteria:
- Maintain a valid, active home or mailing address in UDSIS
- Have paid tax-reportable tuition, fees, or financial aid transactions to the student account during the reported calendar year (including prior year adjustments)
Reporting Method for Tax Year 2019
UD reports qualified payments in Box 1 on the 1098-T., as the federal government no longer allows the University to report qualified expenses in Box 2 effective tax year 2018.
Inclusions for 2019 Tax Year
- Paid tuition

Exceptions for 2019 Tax Year
