1098-T Tax Information for Students

Southwestern College is offering you the opportunity to retrieve your 2019 Form 1098-T online in January 2020.  We have contracted with a specialized provider for this service.

IRS regulations state that each student who wishes to receive their 1098-T electronically must also provide his/her consent electronically. Therefore, if you wish to take advantage of this you must visit www.tsc1098t.com. The instructions are outlined below:

  • Website: www.tsc1098t.com
  • Site ID:  11448
  • User Name:  Student ID
  • Password: Last 4 digits of your Social Security Number (SSN)*

*  Please note that if you have logged in and consented to receive your prior year 1098T you can disregard this message. 

For security reasons, you will be prompted to change your password. Enter your current password (last four digits of your SSN) and then enter a new password.  After clicking Log in, an automated email will be sent to your email address on file and allow you to reset your password.  The new password must be at least 8 characters and contain at least one numeric character, one upper case letter and one special character. This password will be your password going forward so please make note of it. 

Also, if you have previously logged in, and your password is no longer the last 4 of your SSN, then your password is what you had changed it to.  There is a  "forgot" password option available on the login screen.

If you are an international student without an SSN or have otherwise not provided your SSN to the Admissions & Records office the temporary password will be 0000. Submitting this temporary password in the login screen will initiate a password reset process with your email on file.

Once you have logged in, you will be presented with the online consent form. Read the Online Consent Form for the requirements and specifications. If you agree, click on “Consent”. Once you consent, you will NOT be mailed a 1098-T and must return to the site after January 30, 2020 to view/print a copy of your 2019 Form 1098-T. Your consent will apply to 2019 and subsequent years. If you don’t consent, then you will be mailed a 1098-T form.

We ask that you take advantage of this service to reduce costs here at Southwestern College and lessen the environmental impact.
