Information for Parents

Important 1098-T Information

Hamilton College issues the 1098-T form to students for tax reporting purposes. This form will be mailed to the student's primary mailing address by January 31. It is not available online.

Please note: if your student graduated in Spring 2016, he/she will not receive a 1098-T form. Hamilton reports tuition according to the year when it is billed, not paid. (i.e. Spring term 2016 was billed in Nov. 2015).

Electronic Tuition Statement

First-year students will receive a paper bill in July. After that time, tuition bills will be available exclusively online each month.

You must sign up to receive your electronic tuition statement. Visit the View/Pay Tuition page by July 1 to enroll. Students must sign up first. Once enrolled, the student must follow the instructions to set up his or her parents.

Please note that this statement is a snapshot in time. An email will be sent each month to both the student and the authorized payer when an updated statement is ready to view.
