Rend Lake College is offering you the opportunity to retrieve your Form 1098-T online in January.

Please note that if you have previously consented to receive your 1098T electronically then you can disregard this email.

IRS regulations state that each student who wishes to receive their 1098-T electronically must also provide his/her consent. Therefore, if you wish to take advantage of this you must visit  The instructions are outlined below:

  1. Go to
  2. Enter the Site ID: 11453
  3. User Name: Rend Lake Studen ID Number
  4. Password: Last 4 digits of your SSN (works only if it is the 1st time accessing this website)
  • *Select the Forgot Password link if the last 4 digits of your SSN do not work. Enter the school site id and the school student id for the username. If there is no email address on file, then you will receive a message stating no information found.

  • If it is the first time accessing the site, you will be prompted to change your password.  Enter your current password (last four digits of your SSN) and then enter a new password.

  • The new password must be at least 8 characters and contain at least one upper case letter, one lower case letter, one numeric character and one special character.  This will be your new password for future logon attempts. The last 4 digits of your SSN will no longer work.

  • *Do not have an SSN? - Enter 0000 for the temporary password.  After clicking Log in, an automated email will be sent to your email address on file and allow you to reset your password.

Once you have entered your new password, you will be presented with the online consent form.  If you agree, click on “Consent”.  If you consent, you will NOT be mailed a 1098-T and must return to the site after January 30 to view/print a copy of your Form 1098-T.  Your consent will apply to subsequent years as well.

We ask that you take advantage of this service to reduce costs here at Rend Lake College and lessen the environmental impact.
