Form 1098-T

In previous years, Point Park University included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) that were 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, the University will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE paid during the year.

Example: A tuition payment made in December 2017 toward the spring 2018 semester will not be reflected on the 2018 1098-T form because the payment was made in the 2017 calendar year.
