It depends.  Since you are claiming as a resident, you may be able to claim education credits if your parents don't claim you as a dependent.  The fact that they pay the expenses does not matter since they are being paid with out-of-pocket (taxable) funds instead of scholarships and grants (nontaxable funds).  Here is an FAQ that provides more information on all of the education benefits:  https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301953
