The Short answer:

If you are going to school part time (less than half) you can take the lifelong learning credit or tuition & fees deduction. Someone with a degree can't take the Hope or American opportunity (I think?) credits, nor a person taking only one class at a time.

Of all the stuff on that form this is all I needed to know. There is a lot of info about Loans and Coverdell savings plans and other things I'm uninvolved in. Okay, now to wait for the 1098 from the College.

joycets, appreciating the help.
