1098-T Tuition Statement


Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to file an annual Tuition Statement (Form 1098-T) for each student who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident pursuing a degree, and for whom a reportable transaction is made (i.e. tuition, fees, and any scholarships or grants received). This information should be combined with your own payment and financial aid records in determining any impact on your tax return. Consult relevant IRS publications or advice from a tax professional for further information.

The 1098-T Forms are provided to current and former students annually by the IRS mandated deadline for the respective tax year.
