An eligible educational institution, such as a college or university, in which you are enrolled and an insurer who makes reimbursements or refunds of qualified tuition and related expenses to you, must provide you with this statement. You, or the person who claims you as a dependent, may be able to take either the tuition and fees deduction or claim an education credit on Form 1040 or 1040A for the qualified tuition and related expenses paid in 2016. Institutions may report either payments received in Box 1 or amounts billed in Box 2. The amount shown in either box may represent an amount other than the one actually paid in 2016. Your institution must include its name, address, and information contact telephone number on this statement. It may also include contact information for a service provider. Although the service provider may be able to answer certain questions about the statement, do not contact them or the filer for explanations of the requirements for (and how to figure) any allowable tuition and fees deduction or education credit that you may claim. For more information about the deduction or credit, see Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education, Form 8863, Education Credits, and the Form 1040 or 1040A instructions.
Account Number: May show an account or other unique number the filer assigned to distinguish your account.
Shows the total payments received in 2016 from any source for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reimbursements or refunds made during 2016 that relate to those payments received during 2016. Note: The University of Hartford leaves this box empty as is not required to report payments received. However, supplemental information to the bottom of the 1098-T to show payments posted to your account in the tax year reported.
Shows the total amounts billed in 2016 for qualified tuition and related expenses less any reductions in charges made during 2016 that relate to those amounts billed during 2015. Note: The University reports the amounts billed.
Shows whether your institution changed its method of reporting for 2016. It has changed its method of reporting if the method (payments received or amounts billed) used for 2016 is different than the reporting method used for 2015. You should be aware of this change in figuring your education credits. The credits are allowable only for amounts actually paid during the year and not amounts reported as billed, but not paid during the year. Note: The University has not changed its reporting method.
Shows any adjustment made for a prior year for qualified tuition and related expenses that were reported on a prior year Form 1098-T. This amount may reduce any allowable education credit that you claimed for the prior year (may result in an increase in tax liability for the year of the refund). See "recapture" in the index to Publication 970 to report a reduction in your education credit or tuition and fees deduction.
Shows the total of all scholarships or grants administered and processed by the eligible educational institution. The amount of scholarships or grants for the calendar year (including those not reported by the institution) may reduce the amount of education credit you may claim for the year.
Shows adjustments to scholarships or grants for a prior year. This amount may affect the amount of any allowable tuition and fees deduction or education credit that you claimed for the prior year. You may have to file an amended income tax return (Form 1040X) for the prior year.
Shows whether the amount in Box 1 or 2 includes amounts for an academic period beginning January–March 2017. See Publication 970 for how to report these amounts.

Shows whether you are considered to be enrolled in a program leading to a graduate degree, graduate-level certificate, or other recognized graduate-level educational credential.
Shows the total amount of reimbursements or refunds of qualified tuition and related expenses made by an insurer. The amount of reimbursements or refunds for the calendar year may reduce the amount of any education credit you can claim for the year (may result in an increase in tax liability for the year of the refund).
