Thanks for the response, Phil.
I think I will be in the the 15% bracket or below, due to my generally impoverished status as a student, so the Lifetime Learning Credit might be the way to go.
Now I probably need to figure out what my total taxable 2012 income would be if I took the amount I paid for summer school out in the same distribution from my IRA-- it would be nice to have that amount of money in the "rainy day" fund since I won't have much actual income for a while.
