Tuition & Finances: Form 1098-T

Form 1098-T

The 1098-T is a tax form that the IRS requires higher education institutions make available to qualified recipients. Each year Walden is responsible for providing students with a copy of their 1098-T federal tax form.

Walden University reports the tuition billed each calendar year on the Form 1098-T.

If you have any questions or need an amended 1098-T, please contact the Office of the Bursar (bursar@waldenu.edu).
