What is a 1098-T?

The 1098-T form reports the amount that Marquette University billed to you during the previous calendar year.  The purpose of the form is to determine if you are eligible for the Lifetime Learning Credit, the American Opportunity Credit, or other education credits on form 1040 or 1040A.

Marquette University reports this information directly to the IRS; therefore the 1098-T is for your information only and does not need to be attached to your tax return.

Why the 1098-T form is important to you

When will I receive my 1098-T?

1098-T's are available to view and print online.  The student needs to login to CheckMarq and click on the link to grant consent.  Once consent is granted, the student can view and print their 1098-T.  The student only needs to grant consent one time; future 1098-T's will automatically be available to view and print online unless the student revokes consent.

Any eligible student who does not grant consent to view online will have a 1098-T form mailed by January 31st to their home address.

Why didn't I receive a 1098-T?

There are several reasons you may not receive a 1098-T:

  • Although you attended Marquette University in 2017, you may have enrolled and been billed in 2016.  Therefore your Spring 2017 charges may have been included on the 2016 1098-T.
  • If your scholarships, grants, or other "free" aid exceed the amount billed during the calendar year Marquette University is not required to send you a form.
  • If you do not have a valid address on file a form will not be generated for you.  You may update your information and then contact our office to have a form generated.
  • If you are classified as a non-resident alien a form will not automatically generate for you.  If you do file taxes, contact our office to have a form generated.  Be sure to have your SSN or TIN available.
