1098-T Forms Are Available Electronically

January 18, 2018

The 1098-T student tax forms are available to pick up electronically. The 1098-T is used to determine student eligibility for claiming the Education Tax Credits on your Federal Income Tax returns.

Wisconsin Lutheran College has contracted with General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) to provide both electronic and paper 1098-Ts. If you do not retrieve your 1098-T electronically, one will be mailed to you. Paper 1098-Ts will be mailed around January 31. If you are eligible to receive a 1098-T, you can retrieve one electronically now. 

Note: In order to retrieve a 1098-T electronically prior to printing, you will need to consent to receiving it electronically in lieu of a mailed form. Be aware that you can get additional copies online in the future as well.

To retrieve your 1098-T electronically:

  • Launch a web browser and go to http://tra.vangent.com
  • Click the “First Time Students” Button.
  • Enter your full First and Last names and the last 5 digits of your Social Security Number.
  • Click Submit.
  • If records are present for you, you will be instructed to create an account. Follow the instructions on the website to create a free account and retrieve your 1098-T. If records are not found for you or you have difficulty creating account, use the “Help” link in the left menu.

You can go to the website as often as needed to retrieve a copy.
