Student Accounts | 1098-T Tax Information

Every January the University of Northern Iowa provides the IRS a 1098-T tax form for all students who were enrolled during the previous tax year. The 1098-T form helps students and/or their families determine whether or not they are eligible to receive a tax credit for a given tax year.  This form is available by January 31st each year.  The form is available electronically through the student's MyUNIverse Student Center or through a Third Party Account with the appropriate permissions. Instructions for downloading the form are listed below.
