Entering Tuition and Fees for Summer Class

My son is a full-time student.  He took a class over the summer through a study abroad school, which counts as credit at his college .  I want to enter his tuition and fees.  In Turbotax 2020, after I enter his 1098-T for his main college,  should I select "add new school" and enter it there?  If so, do I need to select "1098-T not required" and then try to find the EIN for the school?  If not, where do I enter this money?  It doesn't see to fit in the other categories ("Books and Materials", "Room and Board", "Computers, etc", and "Special Needs Expenses").

I would add it as an additional expense to the school that issued the credit. 

I would not try to add the foreign university. 

Enter the tuition and fees but not the cost of travel as additional expenses after entering the 1098-T. 

Keep the receipts with your tax files.
