If you are billed for courses in the MyColumbia system, contact Columbia Central at 312-369-7140 or email at email@example.com.
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 2022 year will be available electronically on January 31, 2023. The 1098-T form will not be mailed to you.
Students who were billed for courses in the MyColumbia portal during the 2022 calendar year, and did not graduate in 2022, may retrieve their 1098-T form using a pass-through login from within CCCPay.
- Log in to your MyColumbia Portal
- Select MyFinancials
- Click "Enter CCCPay"
- Click “View 1098-T”
Students who graduated in 2022 do not have access to the MyColumbia portal. Please follow the instructions below to retrieve your 1098-T form.
Students who graduated after the Spring 2022 or Summer 2022 semester, may retrieve their 1098-T form electronically at www.tsc1098t.com
