1098-T Statements for Tax Year 2018 Are Now Available

If you received aid or paid out of pocket for any tuition and fees during Calendar Year 2018 (January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2018) you may be eligible to receive a 1098-T Tax Tuition Statement from UACCM. 

1098-T statements can be found on https://1098tforms.com/.

Please click on either "returning student login” if you used the website last year, or “to student enrollment page" if this is your first time on the website.

Additional Instructions to download your 1098t form can be found here: https://1098tforms.com/instructions/.

The 1098-T Tax Tuition Statement will summarize charges, payments and aid received during calendar year 2018.

Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you are considered full or half-time enrolled, 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 at https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-1098-t.)

The dollar amounts reported on your Form 1098-T 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.

UACCM will report payments made by the student for tuition and fees in Box One. UACCM will report any adjustments from prior year reporting in Box Four. UACCM will report the total amount of scholarships and grants for tuition and fees in Box Five. UACCM will report any adjustments to prior year scholarships and grants in Box Six. 

UACCM is unable to provide you with individual tax advice, but should you have questions, you should seek the counsel of an informed tax preparer or adviser.

Below is a blank sample of the 2018 Form 1098-T that you will receive in January 2019, for your general reference.

Arn Selected As Interim Chancellor

University of Arkansas System President Dr. Donald R. Bobbitt has named Diana Arn interim chancellor of the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton. Arn, currently the vice chancellor for academic services, will take over for Dr. Larry Davis, upon his retirement effective January 31. 

“As UACCM prepares to embark on the search for a new chancellor, the faculty and staff at UACCM will continue their high standard of service,” Arn said. “Our spring semester is scheduled to begin January 14, and we are busy enrolling students in credit classes that will lead to skills used to join the workforce upon graduation or skills needed to transfer to a four-year institution and be successful.”  

Dr. Bobbitt made the announcement in a letter to UACCM staff, students, and the community. “UACCM has made great progress during the tenure of Dr. Davis’ chancellorship, and I am positive that Ms. Arn will continue this upward trajectory,” Bobbitt said.

Arn enters the role with 32 years of experience at UACCM. A U.S. Army veteran, she joined the college in 1987 as a business education instructor. In 2002, she became division chair of humanities, social sciences, and mathematics, then was vice chancellor starting in 2008. She also has notable experience sitting on committees. Since 2008, she has sat on the Arkansas Rural Nursing Education Consortium Board, including presiding as chair on three separate occasions, and has served on the Arkansas Community Colleges Board. 

She received her M.S.E. in Business Education at the University of Central Arkansas. Prior to that, she earned a bachelor’s degree at Harding University and an associate’s degree at Arkansas State University-Beebe. As a graduate of a two-year college, she expressed what UACCM is offering to the community in addition to its for-credit academic and career training programs. 

“Our Workforce Training Department is developing training opportunities for business and industry and is ready to help with specific requests while our Community Education Department continues to offer classes for personal enrichment. UACCM offers Adult Education classes in Conway, Faulkner, Perry, and Van Buren counties to serve those working on a GED or WAGE training.  

“Our job has been and will continue to be to serve the community and our students,” she said.

Bobbitt laid out the process of how the permanent chancellor will be selected. “In the coming weeks I will name a search committee to assist this office and the Board of Trustees in managing the search process,” he said. “Given the high regard with which UACCM is held both in Arkansas and outside the state, I am positive we will have an exceptional pool of candidates for the campus to consider.”

Public Invited To UACCM Chancellor Retirement Reception

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) invites the public to attend a retirement reception honoring Chancellor Larry Davis on Thursday, January 17, 2019 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The event will be held at the Workforce Training Center, Tyson Hall A, at 1537 University Blvd. on the UACCM campus.

Chancellor Davis will retire effective January 31, 2019, after serving in that role since 2010. Prior to his appointment as chancellor at UACCM, Davis had a 31 year career at OSU-Okmulgee followed by serving six years at ASU-Newport as Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

During his tenure at UACCM, he guided the college through its North Central Association accreditation, and oversaw the creation of several new programs that met the demand of industry including commercial driver training and industrial mechanics and maintenance. One of his proudest achievements was the opening of the Workforce Training Center in April 2018 that houses the Department of Workforce Development and Community Education, and offers technical training in the fields of automotive service; air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration; industrial mechanics and maintenance and welding.

Davis also forged strong ties with the Conway County school superintendents and developed strong relationships with the region’s business and industry leaders. He was named the 2012 Earle Love Business Leader of the Year by the Morrilton Area Chamber of Commerce.

The public is invited to attend the come-and-go reception and share both memories and well-wishes.
