Tax Information

Please note that the REU stipend is taxable.  However, it is paid out of a financial aid account and not of a high enough value to trigger a tax form (i.e. W-2 or 1098T) from the university, so it will be considered Self-Reported Income on your income tax form.

If you have questions regarding this, the phone number for Student Financial Services is (734) 764- 7447.
