Online Advising Now Available for Honors!

Dear students,

I understand that many times throughout the semester it gets difficult to physically come in for advising sessions.  Many of you work full-time jobs and may be taking several classes, thereby having little to no time to meet with me.  Effective this Fall 2018, (beginning the week of August 27th), I will offer opportunities for those in similar situations to “meet with me” on Tuesday evenings between the hours of 5 and 7 PM via the Zoom app.

You may create a free account at the Zoom website https://zoom.us/ and continue to schedule meetings with me via the link in my email signature as you normally would.  However, when you schedule your meeting, please make sure to indicate that this is an online meeting and I will send you a follow-up link to log on during your scheduled time frame.

Please let me emphasize that this tool is intended for students who are unable to come in for advising during the regular work day.  If you are able to meet with me during normal hours between 8 and 4 PM, Monday through Thursday, please do so to leave this time available for students with heavy schedules.

Have questions?  Email ctamez8@alamo.edu

1098T Tax Form

Students, for those of you waiting on your tax form, please see the following:

1098-T Frequently Asked Questions

1. When can I get my 1098-T?
You may access your 1098-T tax form online by January 31, 2018 at https://heartland.ecsi.net/.

2. Why do I need to provide a Social Security Number (SSN) or Tax Identification Number (TIN)?
If you are planning to file an income tax return using your education expenses, you will need to have a valid SSN on file. If you are an international student and plan to file taxes, we will need your TIN. However, if you are an international student without an SSN, and are not filing a tax return you do not need to provide a SSN or a TIN.

If you attended any of the Alamo Colleges District’s colleges and are eligible for a 1098T form, you can view your 1098-T information from: https://heartland.ecsi.net/
