Educational Institutions must choose to report either (Box 1) the total payments received or (Box 2) total amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses. Only one of these boxes is to be reported.

Your 1098T will report (Box 2) qualified tuition and related expenses that have been billed for the calendar year. For an explanation of what expenses qualify for the credit, please go to IRS Form 8863 or Pub. 970 or click on the website links below.

Box 1 -- This box will be blank. Form 1098T will not report amounts paid by the student. For information regarding payments you made, please refer to your records or you may obtain a student statement of account for the semesters you attended through the MyNCC online registration system. We regret that we cannot mail statements for tax purposes. Please do not request that a statement be mailed.

To obtain your statement through MyNCC:

  • You will need your Student Password and Pin #
  • Login to your account on the MyNCC on-line data system
  • Choose "Set Options"
  • Select the proper session and year
  • Set the Program to "CRED"
  • Click "Submit Options"
  • Go to "Tuition Bill/Schedule
  • Repeat for each Session needed
  • If you forgot your password, you will need to contact the Records Office to request a new password. Passwords cannot be given over the telephone.

Box 2 will report total amount of qualified tuition and related expenses billed during the calendar year less any related reductions in charges. See IRS Form 8863 (external link) or Pub. 970 (external link) for an explanation of the expenses that qualify for the tax credit.

Box 3 will be blank. This box is only checked if the reporting method has changed from previous years. NCC retains its Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses reporting method.

Box 4 shows reductions to qualified expenses that were reported in the previous tax year. This amount may reduce any allowable education credit you may claim for the prior year. See IRS Form 8863 (external link) or Pub. 970 (external link) for more information.

Box 5 shows total grants and scholarships received and processed by NCC on your behalf. This also includes payments we receive from the trade act, workforce investment, and miscellaneous tuition assistance plans. The amount of scholarships or grants for the calendar year (including those not reported by NCC) may reduce the amount of any allowable tuition and fees deduction or the education credit you may claim for the year.

Box 6 shows any reductions to grants and scholarships received in the previous tax year. This amount may affect the amount of any allowable tuition and fees deduction or educational credit you may claim for the prior year. See IRS Form 8863 for how to report these amounts.

Box 7 is blank as we are not reporting amounts billed for the next calendar year.

Box 8 shows whether you are considered to be carrying at least one-half the normal full-time workload for your course of study at your school. In order to be considered half-time at NCC, you must complete 6 or more credit hours for one full semester.

Box 9 is blank as NCC is an undergraduate institution.

Box 10 is blank as NCC is not an insurer.
