  • The fees listed below will be assessed by the university. The term "cost" includes those increased costs to the University that are reasonable, specific, identifiable and directly related to goods or services

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING BOX 1 & 2: In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970.)

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.

Florida Gulf Coast University is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

PLEASE NOTE: If your web browser is not properly configured to view PDFs in the Bill & Payment Center your 1098-T may appear blank. If this occurs please either configure your browser or when prompted save the file to your hard drive and then open within Adobe Reader.
