The University of Tampa has partnered with Heartland ECSI to deliver Form 1098-T Tuition Statements for tax reporting.
Form 1098-T is used to assist students in determining eligibility for an educational tax credit. This is an annual statement that provides a student with the amount of tuition payments made for qualified tuition and related expenses on the account during the calendar year. Your personal financial records serve as official supporting documentation for a federal tax return.
Students who elect to receive an electronic Form 1098-T may access it via ECSI's website any time after Jan. 20 (estimated date). Otherwise, a paper copy will be sent via the U.S. Postal Service postmarked no later than Jan. 31 to your address on file.
To opt-in for electronic delivery (fastest way to receive your 1098-T), follow the instructions below:
- Log into Workday via MyUTampa
- Click on the Finance Tab in Workday
- Scroll to the 1098-T Section on the Finance Dashboard
- Click on 1098-T Electronic Consent - this will bring you to ECSI eConsent page
- Select University of Tampa - complete the remaining items on the page
Electronic consent must be given prior to Jan. 1 for the previous calendar year.
This consent is for every subsequent year the student is eligible to receive a tax statement. You can change your consent at any time by signing into your ECSI eConsent or contacting ECSI
On Form 1098-T, The University of Tampa reports the name, social security number and address of the students, and indicates whether they were a graduate student and/or at least half-time during the calendar year.
Box 1 reports the total payments made during the calendar year for qualified tuition and related expenses. Payments made for tuition will include most tuition-related charges on the student account except charges such as:
- Student Health Fee
- Orientation Fee
Non-qualified expenses not included in Box 1 are housing, meal plans, books and other miscellaneous payments.
Box 2 will be blank.
Box 4 reports total reductions in payments reported in a prior year.
Box 5 reports the amount of all scholarships, grants and other gifts applied to the account during the calendar year.
Box 6 reports total reductions in gift aid received and reported in a prior year.
Please note: International Students will not receive a 1098-T form. Should an International Student need a form, please send a request to the Bursar's Office and a form will be generated. If you have previously asked for a form to be generated, students will receive forms for future tax years.
The University of Tampa staff cannot give tax advice or assist students in calculating individual credit amounts. Please consult a tax adviser for assistance.
