FINANCIAL AID AT WMU
The mission of the Student Financial Aid Office is to increase access to a rigorous and affordable college education by being WMU’s central source for financial aid funding, information, planning, and education.
Expanded Mission Statement
WMU is required to mail a 1098-T form to most students on the amount of tuition and qualified fees paid. The 1098-T form is mailed by Jan. 31 each year. To claim the credit, the student or parent needs to complete the IRS Form 8863.
Each year after Jan. 31, you can also access your own 1098-T information. If you have questions about the information indicated on your 1098-T form, please call (877) 467-3821.
