For All Potential 1098-T Students

The Finance Office is reviewing accounts for the 1098-T Forms. This is the tax form that UCC is required to send to the IRS and to the students who are enrolled in for credit courses and have reportable transactions during each calendar year. An email went out to students that do not have a Social Security Number on file. Although students are not required to provide their Social Security Number, UCC is required to request the SSN from the student. 1098-T’s are sent to the IRS and the social security number is helpful for this process. If you need to provide this information, you can provide the W-9 form to the Registration Office. UCC provides the 1098-T’s electronically to our students. We are notifying students that they will be able to retrieve this form electronically through their Self Service Banner by January 31, 2020. Students have consented to receive their 1098-T electronically. If a student wants to receive a paper copy of their 1098-T they need to follow the instructions on our website at the link below. https://www.umpqua.edu/images/templates/request-a-paper-1098-t.pdf. If you want to receive a paper copy of your 1098-T please ensure your address is current with the Registration and Records Office. 1098-T’s will be mailed by January 31, 2020.
