1098-T Tax Information
Federal Form 1098-T is available electronically (paperless) for eligible students. To opt-in to the paperless 1098-T, please go to ECSI. For students who do not opt for an electronic (paperless) 1098-T, the forms are mailed by the IRS deadline each January.
Some benefits of opting in to the electronic copy are:
- Online delivery provides access to the Form 1098-T earlier than the traditional mailing process.
- Online delivery eliminates the chance that the 1098-T will get lost, misdirected, or delayed during delivery, or misplaced once the student receives it.
- Signing up for online delivery is easy and secure.
- Students can receive their Form 1098-T even while traveling, or on assignment away from their home address.
This form is required should taxpayers wish to take the Hope or Lifetime Learning Credits for themselves or dependent children. Information regarding the credits can be found in IRS Publication 970, which can be downloaded from www.irs.gov.
WPI reports total charges assessed by calendar year, not semester, per the IRS regulations. We do not include any payments made by the family, or loan disbursements, on the 1098-T. Print a Form W-9S to submit your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN).
Students may also view/print 1098-T information on their WPI Web Information System. You will need your User ID and PIN to log into your account.
