Universities are required to issue the 1098T Tuition Statement to each student. The information contained in the 1098T will help you and your tax advisor to determine your eligibility for education tax credits when filing your tax return. The amount shown represents the amount billed to you by Saint Mary’s University.

Students will be notified in January with instructions on how to access the 1098-T electronically. You have to log into Webtools and sign an electronic release before you can access it online. If you do not sign the electronic release, you will be mailed a hard copy of your 1098T after the 31st of January.

Non-Degree Seeking Students: In order to access the electronic release or the 1098T form, you will first need to set up and establish your Webtools username and password. You may contact the help desk at 800-635-5987, ext. 7800 or or contact the PDI office at 1-877-218-4755

Consult your tax advisor to determine eligibility for a credit on your tax return. If you have questions regarding the contents of your 1098T, you may contact the Business Office at

News & Notes

The PDI program supports the professional development needs of educators through collaborative planning with teachers, schools, and school districts in the design and delivery of on-site professional development. We can also align graduate credit with the professional development you already provide in your school or district.

Get the benefits of developing a collaborative partnership in your school. As an educator, you will benefit by connecting your learning to your classroom practice and receive graduate credits. As a school, educators will work together on important school initiatives in a timeframe that meets your school's needs.

Please email for more information about any of these opportunities.

Professional Book Study

Professional book studies provide the structure for purposeful dialogue that richly connects a text to the participants' work in schools. Such a collaborative structure promotes needed collegiality and professionalism among colleagues. Implementation discussions allow participants to share what works and what doesn't, and bring forth recommendations to impact instruction for promoting student achievement. If you would like to lead a Book Study in your school this year, please contact the PDI program office at 1-877-218-4755 and we will help you get started!
