Resources and education
The Student Accounts Office is responsible for billing tuition and fees, collecting payments, disbursing refunds, and invoicing employers. We work closely with the Registrar’s Office and the Financial Aid Office to ensure that the charges and credits on each student account are accurate and timely. We provide resources and education that enable students to make independent and informed financial decisions. Accepted HNU students can access their student account billing, payment, and refund details 24/7 through the online Student Account Center. Students may invite others to access their student account online; permission is at the discretion of the student.Student Account Center (online)

Form 1098-T is an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) form provided to eligible students who enroll in eligible courses at Holy Names University (HNU.) The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 (TRA97) established education tax credits for taxpayers. For detailed information regarding these credits please consult IRS Publication 970 Tax Benefits for Education.
This form is informational and serves to alert students that they may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. The 1098-T is not meant to be an indicator of income. Receipt of the 1098-T form does not indicate eligibility for the tax credit. It contains information to assist you and the IRS in determining if you are eligible to claim education-related tax credits. Your personal financial records serve as official supporting documents for your federal income tax return. The information on the 1098-T form is only provided to assist you. Please consult with your tax preparer if you have additional questions regarding how the 1098-T relates to your specific tax preparation.
Form 1098-T supplies a portion of the information needed by taxpayers to claim the tax credits. By Federal law, this form must be provided to the student by January 31 of each year. In addition, students are able to access the form online at Heartland ECSI and print additional copies as necessary.
FERPA regulations prohibit HNU from discussing financial details with external third parties (including parents and guardians) unless the student has completed a FERPA Consent to Release Financial Information Form.
Students have access to this form in their MyHNU student portal.
