A hard copy of the 1098-t form will be mailed  to all eligible students no later than 1/31/2017. Students will also be able to access data for 2016 online at that time. The information  can be accessed through My 1098-T Info.
The 1098-T form is used by eligible educational institutions to report information about their students to the IRS as required by the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997. Eligible educational institutions are required to submit the student's name, address, and taxpayer's identification number (TIN), enrollment and academic status. Beginning with 2003, educational institutions must also report amounts to the IRS pertaining to qualified tuition and related expenses, as well as scholarships and/or grants, taxable or not. A 1098-T form must also be provided to each applicable student. This form is informational only. It serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. It should not be considered as tax opinion or advice. While it is a good starting point, the 1098-T, as designed and regulated by the IRS, does not contain all of the information needed to claim a tax credit. There is no IRS requirement that you must claim to tuition and fees deduction or an education credit. Claiming education tax benefits is a voluntary decision for those who may qualify.
Students will receive their 1098-T forms by mail and can access the information electronically. To access your information online you must be logged in to MyNaropa. The information can be found under Student/Billing and Financial Aid/My 1098-T Info. 
Not all students will receive a 1098-T form for the tax year. You will NOT receive a form in the following cases:
  1. Courses for which no academic credit is offered, even if the student is otherwise enrolled in a degree program.
  2. Nonresident alien students, unless specifically requested by the student by 1/31/17, please send an email request to studentacct@naropa.edu.
  3. Students whose qualified tuition and related expenses are entirely waived or paid entirely with grants, scholarships, or third party benefits.

If you do not receive a form but think you are eligible for one, contact Naropa's Accounting Office at 303-245-4674 by March 15, 2017.

In January of each year, Naropa University produces an IRS Form 1098-T for all students who had qualified tuition and other related educational expenses billed to them during the previous calendar year. It serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. This form is informational only and should not be considered as tax opinion or advice.To determine the amount of qualified tuition and fees paid, and the amount of scholarships and grants received, a taxpayer should use their own financial records.

The IRS instructs institutions to report either payments received (Box 1) or amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses (Box 2) on the 1098-T.

Naropa University reports the amounts you were billed for qualified tuition and related expenses during the calendar year, not the academic year (Box 2) and scholarships and grants, therefore, Box 1-Payments received for Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses,will be blank.
While it is a good starting point, the 1098-T, as designed and regulated by the IRS, does not contain all of the information needed to claim a tax credit. Most of the information needed must come from the student's personal financial records of what the student paid during the calendar year. You can access a record of all your charges and payments on MyNaropa.
No. The address shown on Form 1098-T is irrelevant for IRS income tax filing purposes. The single most important information on the form is your Social Security Number.
You can print all of the information online by accessing your MyNaropa account.  If you need a hard copy of the form please contact Aisha Sayles in the Accounting office at asayles@naropa.edu or 303-245-4674
You can print a copy of all account activity from the past year through MyNaropa.

Why is Naropa asking for my social security number or ITIN?

The IRS requires that colleges and universities collect the name, social security number (SSN) or individual tax payer number (ITIN) for students with qualified tuition charges. In addition, the amount of a students' qualifying charges must be reported to the IRS on IRS form 1098-T. The information on the 1098-T provides the IRS with a basis for amounts claimed by a taxpayer as qualifying expenditures for the Hope Scholarship Tax Credit and/or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. 

We will never ask you to supply your SSN/ITIN by email. Instead, we ask that you to complete form W9-S and submit the completed form to a Registrar's representative either by mail or in person at the front desk of Wulsin Hall on the Arapahoe campus.

  • If we do not have a valid SSN or ITIN on your student record, we will email you to ask you to provide this information to a Registrar representative.
  • If you refuse to provide your SSN or ITIN, or you provide an incorrect number,  the I.R.S. is empowered to impose penalties.

Form W9-S can be found on the I.R.S. website at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw9s.pdf.

 Please submit the completed form to the registration office by mail, fax, or in person in the lobby of Wulsin Hall on the Arapahoe campus:

What if Naropa does not have my correct SSN or ITIN?

The I.R.S. requires colleges and universities to collect social security numbers or individual taxpayer numbers (ITIN) for all students with qualified tuition charges. We will never ask you to supply your number by email. Instead, we ask that you complete form W9-S and submit the completed form to Naropa's Registrar's Office.

Please note that if we do not have your SSN on file by 12/31/13 , your form will be filed without it, and, you may be subject to a fine by the IRS or the missing information may result in delays in filing your taxes. Requests to correct the number after the fact can take several weeks to complete. If your 1098-T has been submitted to the I.R.S. with no SSN or ITIN, or with an incorrect SSN or ITIN, please submit your W-9S to the Office of the Registrar as soon as possible and inform them of this so that your 1098-T can be corrected if necessary. 

If you refuse to provide your SSN or ITIN, or you provide an incorrect number, the I.R.S. is empowered to impose penalties.

Please consult IRS Publication 970 for the year in which you are filing for more information on Educational Tax Credits for which you may be eligible. No Naropa employee may give tax advice. If you are unsure about your eligibility, please consult with a qualified tax preparer.
