Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses
Qualified tuition and related expenses are tuition and fees required for a student to be enrolled at, or attend an eligible educational institution.

The Following are not qualified tuition and related expenses:
Amounts paid for any course or other education involving sports, games, or hobbies, unless the course or other education is part of the student’s degree program.

Charges for room, board, insurance, medical expenses (including student health fees), transportation, and similar personal, living, or family expenses.

The IRS gives institutions the option of providing information in Box (1) or Box (2). The King’s College has opted to provide information in Box (2).

Box (2): Amounts Billed for Qualified Tuition & Related Expenses

Box (2) will show the total tuition and related fees required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution. These tuition and related fees are those that were billed between January 1 and December 31 of the tax reporting year, which includes the qualified tuition and related fees incurred in the Spring, Summer and Fall semesters of the tax reporting year.
