California Western -- Financial Aid Office - Tax Benefit / Tax Credit Information
Tax Credit Information

There are two tax credits and a tax deduction which pertain to students enrolled in post-secondary education:

  • The Lifetime Learning Credit
  • The Hope Scholarship tax credit
  • The Tuition and Fees Tax Deduction.

Note: The Hope Scholarship tax credit only applies to students who have completed less than two years of postsecondary education, and therefore will not generally pertain to students at California Western.

NASFAA (the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators) provides information regarding these tax benefits at their "Higher Education Federal Tax Benefits Guide".
