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
  • Click "Tax Documents" and "Click Here To Search For Your Tax Form"
  • Enter "University of Memphis" for the School Name and click "Submit"
  • Enter your personal information, check "I'm not a robot", then click "Continue"
  • Click on "+" on the right side of the screen to display your tax information, then print

Please note: Electronic consent will remain in effect until you email your withdrawal of consent electronically to usbs@memphis.edu
