institution and you meet all the other requirements, then you can claim the
credit. According to page 23 of Pub 970, "an eligible educational
institution is any college, university, vocational school or other
postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid
program administered by the US department of Education. It includes virtually
all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned
profit-making) postsecondary institutions. The
educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible
educational institution." Please refer to the following IRS
