Important

  • Single semester loans will have two disbursements; please plan accordingly
  • Some financial aid programs may not be disbursed until well into the semester, especially for first-time students; please plan accordingly
  • Credit balances from financial aid cannot be held from one academic year to another; therefore, alloutstanding financial aid credit balances will be refunded to the student
  • Regardless of who remitted the payment to the student account, the refund will be made payable to the student, except for credit balances produced by a Parent Plus Loan and certain scholarships/trusts
    • Parents have the election to have any excess funds refunded to the student, however, would have to choose that election during the financial aid process
  • Some types of financial aid can only be used to pay for certain types of charges; therefore, you could receive a refund even if you have outstanding charges on your account from the current or previous terms
    • You are responsible for paying the balance on your account, if one remains, even after you receive a financial aid refund
  • A student who has received a refund based on financial and later changes enrollment status may be required to repay all or part of the aid received to the college or to the appropriate federal or state financial aid programs
  • Students receiving federal aid, other than Federal Work-Study funds, who withdraw, change enrollment status (increase or decrease credit hours), or are reported for non-attendance, will have federal financial aid adjusted in accordance with formulas prescribed by the Federal Title IV Program

1098T TAX INFORMATION

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 here.

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 their tax return.

White Mountains Community College is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.
