Fall 2020/Spring 2021 Update
To ease the financial challenges families may be facing during the overall pandemic, Pratt’s Board of Trustees has voted to rescind the increases to tuition, room, and board that they had approved in December, freezing tuition, room, and board at 2019/20 rates. Students who choose to study 100 percent remotely online will not be charged the fees typically associated with on-campus living and instruction. Pratt’s facilities will be accessible to students who participate in face-to-face instruction this fall. While many of the fees remain the same, the student activity fee, room, and board will be reduced, in addition to the tuition, room, and board freeze. Please see “Adjustments to Fees and Tuition for 2020/21 Academic Year” for more details on how this impacts both undergraduate and graduate students.

- Students must provide written documentation from the third party billing sponsor advising how much and when payment will be received for a given semester. The documentation should come from the third party billing sponsor and indicate the term the funds being received are for. The documentation should also clearly state whether any excess funds are to be refunded to the student or sent back to the third party billing sponsor.
- Students will be financially cleared only in the event the third party billing sponsor is covering tuition, fees and any other charges in full. THE INSTITUTE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO BLOCK FUTURE REGISTRATIONS IN THE EVENT THE THIRD PARTY BILLING SPONSOR HAS NOT PAID THEIR PORTION PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF A SUBSEQUENT SEMESTER.
- Students will not be financially cleared in the event the third party billing sponsor is only covering a portion of the tuition and fees unless the portion not covered by the third party sponsor is paid in full by some other means.
- Students can apply for refunds only in the event that the third party billing sponsor letter has been received and either payment in full is as a result of the letter, or additional financial aid must be in an approved status at the time the letter is presented. Refunds are not available until after the drop/add period ends for each semester.
- Students should bring or send the original documentation to Mr. Lloyd Noel - Student Financial Services - 200 Willoughby Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11205 Myrtle Hall 6th Floor.
- Third party billing sponsors are typically not billed until after the drop period ends each semester in order to ensure there are no future changes to registration. Students are ultimately responsible for any changes that occur to billing after the third party sponsor payment has been received.

1098T Tax Credit Information
In years prior to 2018, your 1098T included a figure in Box 2 that represented the Qualified Tuition and Related Expenses (QTRE) we billed to your student account for the calendar (tax) year.
Due to a change in institutional reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, (forms you received in 2019 and beyond ) we will report in Box 1 the amount of QTRE you paid during the year.
Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered enrolled full or half-time, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. (You can find detailed information about claiming education tax credits in IRS Publication 970, page 9.)
The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098T may assist you in completing IRS Form 8863 – the form used for calculating the education tax credits that a taxpayer may claim as part of your tax return.
Heartland ECSI will have 3 prior year’s (2017,2018, 2019) 1098T information in their system. For any forms older than 2017 please contact the sfs Office directly.
We can only provide reprints for a prior year.
