1098-T Forms

CAPA International Education is not considered an eligible higher education institution under the Department of Education and therefore does not issue 1098-T forms. The student’s home institution should be issuing the 1098-T form, especially if the home institution bills the program fees to the student’s institutional account. If the student pays CAPA directly, there is no guarantee that the student will be able to use the educational costs of the program to file for the Education Tax Credits, since CAPA does not report these costs to the IRS as eligible tuition costs. We are happy to provide students who paid CAPA directly and would like to consult a professional tax advisor, with a copy of their account statement showing their accounts paid in full.

The study abroad office at your school is the best resource! They will have more information about using your financial aid to study with CAPA, and it is highly advised that you talk to an advisor about transferring over your fund.
