1098-T Information

Important notice: Effective January 1, 2018, tax law requires all educational institutions to report payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) in Box 1 of the Form 1098-T.  Scholarships & Grants awarded during the calendar year will continue to be shown in Box 5.

Families filing a U.S. tax return may be eligible for educational tax credits when claiming their University of Memphis student as a dependent. In mid to late January, the USBS Office will generate an IRS Form 1098-T necessary to file for these tax credits. The 1098-T will be provided electronically via the student’s account.  

Students that have not consented to receive their 1098-T statements electronically will have a paper statement mailed to them by January 31st. 

Students also have the option to view and print online using the following instructions:

  • Go to heartland.ecsi.net
  • Select " Find Your Tax Document" 
  • Select " I need my 1098-T Tuition Tax Statement" 
  • Enter "University of Memphis" for the School Name and "Submit"
  • Enter your personal information, select "I'm not a robot", then select "Continue"
