Information reported on form 1098-T

On the 1098-T form, Prairie View A&M University reports student’s name, SSN, address and indicates if the student was a graduate student or at least half-time during the calendar year. The university reports the amount billed for qualified tuition and related expenses and not the actual amount that the student paid to the university during the calendar year. Since Prairie View A&M University does not identify payments on student account with specific charges, it is impossible to determine which payment is made towards the qualified expenses and which is made towards the unqualified expenses. Therefore, the university has elected to report amounts billed in Box 2 instead of payment received in Box 1 . Students should use their personal records and university fee receipts to determine the actual amount paid towards the charges reported on the 1098-T statement. 

Some Examples of Qualified and Unqualified Charges:

What is a 1098-T form?
