1098T Statement

For those students with a valid Social Security Number or a Tax Identification Number, the 1098T form provides information about educational expenses that may qualify students—or parents or guardians of students, if the student is still a dependent—for education-related tax credits. It is available each year by January 31.

The 1098T form can be retrieved by logging in to student self-service, clicking on tax information on home screen, and selecting the appropriate tax year. You can then view, save, and print your statement.

We do not send paper 1098T forms. It can only be viewed and printed via the student self service portal.

Follow the instructions to review and print your 1098T statement. 


  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
