Welcome to UNF's Student Financial Services Office
Tuition and Fee Payment Deadline for Spring 2019 is 5 p.m. on January 14, 2019.
If charges remain on your account after the payment deadline, after the disbursement of financial aid, or if subsequent changes are made to your account, it is your responsibility to make sure they are paid. Outstanding tuition and fee balances will be assessed a $100 late payment fee.
In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2
that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTF) we billed to your student account for the
calendar (tax) year. Due to a change to institutional reporting requirements
under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, we will report in Box 1 the
amount of QTF that was paid during the
year. This amount is not necessarily the amount you paid out-of-pocket towards QTF but the amount paid from any source.
Though you may have paid for your Spring 2018 tuition and fees in 2018, most students registered in 2017 and the amount of QTF was reported on the 2017 1098T. IN order to include all the information on one form we have added supplemental information on the 2018 1098T that indicates the amount of QTF for the Spring 2018 semester.
Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are
a dependent), whether you were considered full or half-time enrolled, and the
amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education
tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax
credits in IRS Publication
970, page 9.)
The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T may assist
you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education
tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.
The University of North Florida is unable to provide you
with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the
counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.
