Carleton College is required to file IRS Form 1098-T with the Internal Revenue Service for all students for whom it received qualified tuition payments.
The IRS Form 1098-T is informational only; you do not need a copy attached to your taxes.
The Business Office will notify eligible students in January when IRS Form 1098-T statements are available on the Hub. At that time, students can download a copy of the form. In many cases a parent or guardian claiming you as a dependent on their tax return will need a copy of this form.

Our goal is to support all students with electronic delivery. Electronic delivery is the most secure way to receive your materials. It supports institutional sustainability initiatives, enhances the timeliness of reporting, improves convenience for students, eliminating lost forms and requests for duplicate forms, and eliminates costs associated with mailing forms. This is an initiative in which we hope our entire student community will choose to participate.
NOTE: Students can remove 1098-T electronic consent for themselves or their Proxys at any time on the Hub .
STUDENT ELECTRONIC CONSENT: Students log into the Hub, select View My 1098-T Form and Give Electronic Consent from the Taxes section. Once on the New Hub, click on Tax Information, select 1098 information, select Receive my 1098 only in electronic format, SAVE.
PROXY ELECTRONIC CONSENT: Students log into the Hub, select View My 1098-T Form and Give Electronic Consent from the Taxes section. Once on the New Hub, click on the person icon (to the left of the screen), under User Options, click on View/Add Proxy Access, select access for Tax Information, SAVE.
Students who choose to withhold their electronic consent will receive a paper IRS Form 1098-T mailed to their home address (or the address that is on file with the Registrar) post marked no later than January 31 each year they are eligible to receive the form.
