How can I report 1098-t with the scholarship amount not been used?

My son received 2016 1098-t with box 1 and 2 empty, but he graduated on May 2016.  In 2015 1098-t, box 7 is checked which means spring 2016 semester tuition already included.  It seems the scholarship amount on 2016 1098-t has not been used, but is reported by the school.

The best thing to do when you have doubts about a tax form is contact the issuer for an explanation. If it is wrong they can issue you a corrected version. Because they sometimes include a next year first semester, the form can get confusing.

You shouldn't alter an official tax reporting form since the IRS also gets a copy and compares figures.You might very well get a letter down the road from them.
