Tax Credits

There are two tax credits available that you may qualify for. They are outlined as follows:

  1. If you are beyond the first 2 years of college, you may qualify for the Lifetime Learning tax credit.
  2. You may be eligible for tax credits through the American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits. This tax credit may be claimed for the qualified tuition and related expenses of each student in the taxpayer's family. For further information and guidance on the Hope Scholarship, consult a tax professional.

1098–T IRS Tuition Statement

If you are a student at Seattle Colleges and have self-paid qualifying tuition and fees, you may be eligible for tax credits.

Access previous years 1098-T forms here.

2021 1098-T Tuition Statements are available in ctcLink through the Student Services Center on the Finance tab. If a form is available, a 1098-T hyperlink will be active. Click on it to review 1098-T information. On this page, there is another hyperlink to print a copy of the form.

The message: “1098-T- Student does not have 1098-T data,” means there is no 2021 1098-T. Prior year 1098-T forms are available (through a link on this page). Previous student number (not ctcLink number) and PIN (birthdate: mm/dd/yy) is required.

The most common reason students do not receive a 1098-T form: all qualifying tuition and fees were paid and/or reimbursed by financial aid, scholarships, grants, or third-party payers.

Other reasons students may not receive a form:

  • International student or non-citizen
  • No SSN on file
  • No address on file
  • Less than ½ time
