If you are billed for courses in the MyColumbia system, contact Columbia Central at 312-369-7140 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because you're attending college, you or your family may be eligible for higher education tax benefits. To claim your benefits, you will need a 1098-T form. The 1098-T form is an information form filed with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It reports the total amount of payments made for qualified tuition and related expenses, as well as other related information.
Your 1098-T form for the 2021 year will be ready by January 31, 2022.
Undergraduate, graduate and non-degree seeking students who were billed for courses in the MyColumbia portal may view their 1098t form using a pass-through login from within CCCPay.
- Log in to your MyColumbia Portal
- Select MyFinancials
- Click "Enter CCCPay"
- Click “View 1098-T”
Please note that your 1098-T will not be mailed to you. You are not required to attach the 1098-T to your tax return. If you need a copy of your 1098-T form for the 2016 tax year or prior, contact Columbia Central.
