1098-T Tax Information

1098-T Tax Form

In accordance with federal law, Case Western Reserve University annually reports payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses billed to U.S. citizen and permanent resident students during the tax year. This form is made available to you electronically through SIS. Students who chose not to receive their form electronically will be mailed the tax return by January 31st. 

Although CWRU does not require that students provide their Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) upon registration, in order for the university to fully comply with its tax reporting responsibility, it should have each student’s current, correct SSN or ITIN for insertion in the 1098-T.

If you, or someone who claims you as a dependent, plan to deduct your educational expenses this year and your SSN or ITIN is not already in your SIS file, complete a CWRU Form W-9S.

Nonresident Alien Request Process

Per Internal Revenue Services regulations, Case Western Reserve University is not required to complete a 1098-T Tax Form to non-resident alien students. However, the IRS does require the university to provide the tax form upon request by the student. To request a 1098-T form, please complete the Nonresident Alien 1098-T Request Form.

Change of Residency Status

Students whose citizenship status has changed during the year should report their change of status to the University Registrar or International Student Services. If the change resulted in the acquisition of a U.S. SSN or ITIN, you should also complete and submit a CWRU Form W-9S.
