1098-T Student Enrollment and Download Instructions

Below are instructions for accessing 1098-T IRS Tax Forms for students attending a college partnering with Financial Payments for 1098-T Processing. Protecting student financial information is extremely important and requires multiple steps to verify the student’s identity and email address so that only approved individuals can access, view, print or download a 1098-T IRS Tax Form.

If at any time the process displays an error, it is best to close out of your browser completely and begin again with a NEW USERNAME. Internet Explorer has caused several challenges for Enrollment, so we suggest using another web browser, such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
