If the student has granted account access for tax documents, the authorized user may log in to retrieve the statement under the eStatements tab.  You may also email studentaccounts@southernct.edu to request a copy or visit our office in-person if you are having trouble accessing the online statement. 

While the Student Accounts Office can not provide tax advice, here are some answers to frequently asked questions.  You may also visit the IRS website  Publication 970, or contact a tax professional for more information about your ability to claim a tax deduction or tax credit.

Why are my payments not listed in Box 1?  Institutions must choose to report either (Box 1) payments received for qualified tuition and related expenses or (Box 2) amounts billed for qualified tuition and related expenses. Since payments made are not directly allocated to specific charges, the university elects to report "Total Amounts Billed" (Box 2).

What is included in Box 2?  Box 2 includes qualified education expenses that were billed between January 1 and December 31. Qualified tuition and fees does not include room, board, insurance, medical expenses, transportation, and similar personal, living, or family expenses.
