My accountant says that the university must provide me with a form 1098-T.

The IRS does not require the university to furnish a Form 1098-T in the following instances:

  • Payments for courses in which no academic credit is offered, even if the student is otherwise enrolled in a degree program.
  • The enrolled student is a nonresident alien.
  • Students whose qualified tuition and related expenses are waived or paid entirely with grants/scholarships.
  • Students for whom you do not maintain a separate financial account and whose qualified tuition and related expenses are covered by a formal billing arrangement between an institution and the student's employer or a governmental entity, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Department of Defense.
