IRS Form 1098-T
Each January, TCU distributes 1098-T tax information to our students. 1098-T form is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) informational form filed by eligible educational institutions to report qualified payments and qualified scholarships from the previous year to the IRS. The institution must submit tax information for every eligible student enrolled that pays qualifying tuition and related expenses. This tax information is transmitted to the IRS. One key identifier used by the IRS to match taxpayer information to the tax return is the Social Security Number (SSN).
To request a refund for a credit balance on an enrolled student account, sign in to my.tcu.edu, click on Student Account, and click on Request a Refund on the left.
Direct Deposit is the preferred refund method. If the student has completed the Direct Deposit setup, refunds can be sent directly to the student’s bank account. Direct Deposit requests must be received by the Student Financial Services Office by noon on Monday in order to have the funds available that same Friday. To request a check, please email email@example.com.
Credit balances resulting from Title IV funds will be refunded in accordance with federal regulations.
Requests received during holiday or university closing periods will be processed during the next refund cycle when the university is open.
