What are qualified tuition and related expenses?
Qualified tuition and related expenses are tuition and fees a student must pay to be enrolled at or attend an eligible educational institution excluding amounts paid for room and board, transportation and recreation fees.
How does Spartanburg Community College report?
SCC reports amounts of qualified tuition and related expenses billed to students during the tax year, and reports scholarships/grants posted to the student s account during the tax year. For the 2012 tax year, a student s 1098-T may include amounts billed for Spring 2012, Summer 2012, Fall 2012 and Spring 2013, depending on when the student registered for courses. In many cases, a student will take advantage of early registration for the spring semester and a bill will be generated in the November-December time frame.
