Financial Aid Refunds-Spring 2019 Joseph Wayne Brenner 2/8/2019 3:21:15 PM

Financial Aid for the Spring 2019 semester will begin to be posted to the student accounts after February 7th. Please note that disbursements do not occur at the same time for all students. The first disbursement will be for those students who had complete financial aid files for the Fall 2018 semester. Additional disbursements will continue throughout the semester.


Any excess financial aid will be refunded and transferred through your Crowder OneCard according to the refund option you selected within two weeks of the date that it is posted to the student account. Our office will be working diligently to process refunds as quickly as possible. If you are expecting a refund, please refrain from inquiring about the status of your refund during this time. Please note that Crowder College disburses excess financial aid before the college receives the monies from federal aid.

You can track your financial aid status and/or refund status by logging on to the My Crowder portal and viewing the “Finance” tab. From there you will have access to the“Financial Aid” and “My Student Account” tabs. You can view your financial aid status by clicking on the “Financial Aid” tab. Your refund status can be viewed on the “My Account” section or by selecting the “Semester Statement” option and choosing Spring 2019. Once your refund has been requested, you will notice a transaction near the bottom that will say “Crowder OneCard Refund.” Please keep in mind that this date only reflects the date that the transfer to Crowder OneCard occurs, not the date that the money will actually hit your bank account or Crowder OneCard account.


If you have not already selected your refund preference or activated your Crowder OneCard, please do so immediately and choose a refund preference. You can choose the ACH option to have the money direct deposited into your existing bank account, or you can choose to open a BankMobile Vibe account if you do not have your own bank account. If you have not received your card, please contact our office for further guidance. Once your card is activated and your refund is processed, you will receive an email from BankMobile indicating that your funds have been disbursed.


Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as we expedite the refund process.


Have a great semester at Crowder College!

1098-T Forms Now Available for Tax Year 2018 Joseph Wayne Brenner 1/25/2019 1:45:51 PM

 

Dear Student:

In previous years, your 1098-T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the qualified tuition and related expenses (QTRE) 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 QTRE you paid during the year.

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.

Crowder College is not able to provide you with individual tax advice. If you have questions, you will need to seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

For more information about Form 1098-T, visit https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1098t.pdf.
