PREPARING FOR SUMMER

This may seem early, but now is the time for students to begin making plans for the summer.  Many students may take the summer to do an internship to prepare them for their desired career.  Internships are a great way for students to learn about a career and get valuable hands-on learning that will supplement their in-class learning.

The Career Services Office offers great opportunities for students.  Encourage your student to attend the All Majors Spring Career Fair on March 14 in the UC Ballroom between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm to meet with employers.  Students can also meet with the Career Services office at any time.  

1098-T TAX FORM

1098-T tax forms are now available from the University of Memphis for use in filing prior year taxes if the student opted to receive the form online. If they did not opt in, the form will be mailed by January 31 to a student's mailing address.

If a student's scholarship, grants and/or fee waivers equaled and/or exceeded what they were charged for tuition for the year, the University of Memphis is no longer issuing 1098-T forms to individuals in this situation, as it not required by the Internal Revenue Service. The purpose of the 1098-T form is to identify those individuals who qualify for the education credit. Only those individuals that pay an out-of-pocket tuition related expense will be able to use the 1098-T.

ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION 

Do you need verification that your student is enrolled for medical insurance, car insurance, or anything else? Students can request enrollment verification from the National Student Clearinghouse or from the Registrar’s office.  For complete details on how to request enrollment verification, visit the Enrollment Verification website.
