ance of Form 1098-T, Tuition Payments Statement. The College reports the amount you paid for qualifying tuition
and fees to both you and the IRS on Form 1098-T. The 1098-T contains information related to claiming a tuition and
fee deduction, the Hope Scholarship credit and/or the Lifetime Learning Credit on your taxes. The College also uses
Social Security Numbers to verify enrollment, degree(s) and transcripts, administer nancial aid, collect student
debt, and conduct research. The College will only utilize your Social Security Number in a manner that does not
permit personal identication of you. The Social Security Number is condential and, pursuant to state law (RCW

as stated above.
