1098-T Information

If you received a 1098-T from Howard Community College, you may be eligible for educational tax credits or deductions.  The college staff is neither qualified nor able to provide tax advice concerning this calculation.

Please refer to the Instructions for Student section of the tax form 1098-T where a detailed description of each box can be obtained. Review your registration statements and paid tuition receipts for information that is specific to your account.

The personal information provided on the 1098-T is name, address, student ID number, and last four digits of your Social Security Number.  If a change to this information is needed, you must do this through the Admissions Office or the Office of Records, Registration & Veterans’ Affairs. Per IRS §1.6050S–1 "to receive a 1098-T, you must have a Social Security Number (SSN) noted in your student record."  To provide your SSN to HCC, submit a Change of Information Form to the Admissions Office or Office of Records, Registration and Veterans’ Affairs.

If you need copies of your paid tuition receipts or registration statements for the calendar year, please send an email to  Please note, we will only respond to an HCC email address as the information contains sensitive data.  If you have lost or misplaced your 1098-T, you can print another copy of your 1098-T form online through myHCC.

Please visit this page for more information about the 1098-T.
