IRS Form 1098-T: Important Update

Enrollment Services is working diligently to provide you and your family the annual Form 1098-T that the IRS requires Cincinnati Christian University to communicate qualified tuition and related expense payments, scholarships and grants, and/or prior year adjustments. For 2018, the IRS made significant changes to its reporting requirements.  While we have been validating our internal data, we have also been monitoring the dialogue that other institutions and our software provider have exchanged to verify that the new format is properly executed. The software provider has installed a number of patches, since the beginning of January. We continue to make sure that those patches also address our ability to provide you a correct form the first time.
 
Thank you for your patience, and we will not delay issuing Form 1098-T any longer than necessary.

Reminder - Change in Prepaid Cards

It was announced in October that the card issuer for CCU's Prepaid Cards had selected a new banking partner. Students with Prepaid Cards issued by MetaBank received an email on 10/22/18 notifying them of the change and that the Prepaid Card would be closed, effective December 15, 2018. The email included a list of important dates for the transition and steps to be taken to receive remaining balances from the card.

If you have a Prepaid Card issued by MetaBank with unused funds, a check for the unused fund balance will be mailed to you by January 31, 2019. If you need to update your address, please log onto your card account at the website listed on the back of your card. You may also call a Customer Support Representative at 1-888-373-7905 if you have additional questions regarding the closure of the Prepaid Card Accounts. 

All students should log into the Student Account Center to review and update (if necessary) their refund preference.
