What are qualified tuition and related expenses? Qualified tuition and related expenses are tuition and fees a student is billed for enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution.

Examples of "qualified" expenses include:

  • Academic Fee
  • Matriculation Fee
  • Activity Fee
  • Technology Fee
  • Software License Fee
  • Lab Fees
  • CBBS Course/Major Fee
  • Library Fee
  • Career Center Fee

Examples of "non-qualified" expenses include:

  • Health Fee
  • Housing Fee
  • Optional Fees (meal plan, Tiger Stripe, parking permit, yearbook, post office box, etc.)
  • Transit Fee
  • Campus Recreation Fee

How Clemson reports: The IRS gives institutions of higher education the option of reporting either payments received (Box 1) or qualified charges billed (Box 2).  Clemson University reports qualified charges billed (Box 2) to the student's account within the calendar year (January 1 - December 31). This may include Spring 2014, Summer I & Summer II, Fall 2014 and Spring 2015.

For the 2014 tax year, students' 1098T forms may or may not include amounts from a Spring semester, depending on when they registered for their classes. Most students register for the Spring semester in November, making those charges eligible to report/claim during the calendar year in which they were billed.

Resources for parents/students: Please refer to IRS Publication 970 for information on the tax benefits that may be available. You may also find information regarding your tax questions on the IRS website,
