I am getting my degree in France this year. I am not studying through a home university though. And 1098-T forms don't exist here. Can I receive some kind of credit still

I am not studying through a home university in the states. I did, however, pay tuition and have proof of it and that I am a student.

Your school must be an Eligible Educational Institution in order for you to claim your expenses. See the link for information. Certain educational institutions located outside the US also participate in the US Department of Educations Federal Student Aid (FSA) Programs. You would have to inquire at your school.

If your school is eligible, it must provide you with a 1098-T, unless for some specific reason it is not required. Examples include:

1.       Nonresident alien students, unless the student requests the institution to file  Form 1098-T,

2.       Students whose tuition and related expenses are entirely waived or paid entirely with scholarships or grants, or

3.       Students for whom the institution does not maintain a separate financial account and whose qualified tuition and related expenses are covered by a formal billing arrangement with the student’s employer or a government agency, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs or the Department of Defense.

You should find out more information about your situation before you proceed.
