The answer from I.J.Zemelman might trigger an audit, because not providing a 1098-T is one of the tax return errors listed on the IRS' site.  

If your foreign education institution is an eligible institution (able to receive U.S. financial aid loans), then it is required to give you a 1098-T.  If the institution is not eligible, then it will not give you a 1098-T and you are not eligible for related education credits.
