A student will not receive a 1098-T unless you had out of pocket expenses. If Financial Aid paid for all of the student’s tuition and fees – they will NOT receive a 1098-T. The 1098-Ts are used to determine a student’s eligibility for claiming the Education Tax Credits on Federal Income Tax returns. Augusta Technical College has contracted with ScholarChip, to provide both the electronic and paper forms of the 1098-Ts.
Students eligible to receive a 1098-T can retrieve one electronically or a mailed form. Once a student is signed up for getting the form electronically, he or she can obtain additional copies online in the future.
To retrieve the 1098-T electronically:
- Login to Smartweb
- Click on Bannerweb
- Click on Student & Financial Aid
- Click on Student Records
- Click on Tax Notification
- Enter Tax Year
You can go to the website as often as needed to retrieve a copy. If you have any questions, please call the Augusta Technical College Office of Student Accounts at (706) 771-4030.
