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).

The University is obligated by federal law (Section 6109 of the IRS code) to request your SSN.  A student who fails to provide their SSN to the University may have a fine assessed from the IRS.
