1098-T Educational Tax Info

1098-T forms for 2013 will be mailed or available online by January 31, 2014.

ECSI is the college's service provider for 1098-T forms this year. Their website is http://www.ecsi.net and their customer service number is 866-428-1098.

If you signed on to ECSI's website in a prior year and selected to print out your 1098-T from the website, you will not be mailed a paper copy of your 2013 1098-T. You will receive an email from ECSI informing you that your 1098-T is available to you online, ECSI asked you for two email addresses when you selected to print out your 1098-T form from the website last year. If you no longer use either email address, you will need to go to the ECSI website and update your contact information.

When a student calls ECSI or logs into ECSI's website, they are required to give our school code and a personal identification number ("PIN"). If you received your 1098-T in the mail, your PIN number is printed on it. If you do not have the mailed 1098-T, you will need to call ECSI's customer service number at 866-428-1098 in order to obtain your PIN number.

Our school code is UG
