If you attended an accredited college/university, yes, you should get form 1098-T. You may be able to get it online in your student account. 

 

Note: If you have a 1098-T from 2018 and 2019, you'll have to report them in separate years on separate tax returns. If you filed a 2018 return, you may need to amend it. 

 

If your college/university does not issue form 1098-T, ask them if they are accredited. If it  is, you'll be able to claim your education expenses.

Looked at my tax transcripts and it looks like they put 11,000 of my 15,000 tuition on my 2018 1098T, even though if I look at my account for school 7000+ was paid in 2019. It's a private school and yes it's accredited, is this why I would have to amend?  Sorry for all the questions just really struggling with this. Your help is much appreciated!!

Ask your school for the 1098-T. Whatever information you find on the transcript is helpful, but the amounts on the 1098-T are also reported to the IRS and the figures have to match.
