Tax Credit

2023 1098-T Tuition Statements are available in ctcLink through the Student Services Center on the Finance tab. If a form is available, a 1098-T hyperlink will be active. Click on it to review 1098-T information. On this page, there is another hyperlink to print a copy of the form.

The message: “1098-T- Student does not have 1098-T data,” means there is no 2023 1098-T. Prior year 1098-T forms are available (through a link on this page). Previous student number (not ctcLink number) and PIN (birthdate: mm/dd/yy) is required.

The most common reason students do not receive a 1098-T form: all qualifying tuition and fees were paid and/or reimbursed by financial aid, scholarships, grants, or third-party payers.

Other reasons students may not receive a form:

  • International student or non-citizen
  • No SSN on file
  • No address on file
  • Less than ½ time

1098-T IRS Tuition Statement & Lifetime Learning Tax Credits

If you are a student at the Seattle Colleges and have paid "qualified tuition and fees" last year, your family may be eligible for tax credits.

To comply with federal laws, we are required to ask for your Social Security Number (SSN) or Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN). We will use your SSN/ITIN to report the American Opportunity Credit (formerly Hope Scholarship/Life Time tax credit), to administer state/federal financial aid, to verify enrollment, degree and academic transcript records, and to conduct institutional research. North Seattle’s Tax ID number is 91-0826872.

If you do not submit your SSN/ITIN, you will not be denied access to the College. However, you may be subject to civil penalties (refer to Internal Revenue Service Treasury Regulation 1.6050S-1(e)(4) for more information).

Pursuant to state law (RCW 28B.10.042) and federal law (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act), the College will protect your SSN from unauthorized use and/or disclosure.
