Sorry to respond to myself, but left out one thing. If you recieve a scholarship, fellowship, stipend, grant, etc, that pays your tuition, it may not qualify for education tax credit. I've been in the situation where my fellowship was taxable (including the amount applied to tuition) and I got to count it. I've also had the situation where my tuition was paid, and this benefit was not considered taxable, and no tax credit was given.

In short, if you recieved "free" funds that paid tuition and related expenses, check to see if you qualify, but don't assume you do
