Forms & Resources

1098-T Forms

Please read our 1098-T FAQ's here.

The University is required to furnish a 1098-T form to each registered student every calendar year. The University sends the 1098-T information to the IRS, the form does not need to be attached to a tax return; students may keep the form for their records.

We report the qualified tuition and related expenses in Box 2 for the calendar year. Box 1 will always be blank. If students need verification of the amount paid, they may either print statements from the eBill system or contact our office to request statements showing the amount paid.

The 1098-T is made available to eligible students by January 31st each year. Please make sure to add @ecsi.net to your list of trusted domains if you consented to receive the form electronically. If not, the forms are mailed to the billing address on file. For questions on your 1098-T, please contact ECSI at 1-866-428-1098.

 

Title IV Authorization Forms

Please review these forms thoroughly and carefully prior to electing or rescinding the authorizations herein. Each authorization has a unique purpose and will affect how The George Washington University will apply or hold Title IV credit balances.

Title IV funds are to be applied to authorized charges such as tuition, fees, and room and board as assessed by the University. Title IV funds include: Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Federal Perkins Loans, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Stafford Loans, Federal Direct PLUS Loans and TEACH Grants.

Federal regulations require that Title IV funds awarded in excess of authorized charges must be refunded no later than 14 days after the funds are credited to the student’s account. In lieu of an automatic refund, federal regulations allow for students or parents to voluntarily authorize the University to handle Title IV credit balances in a variety of ways.
