I paid $20,000 for my child's college last year. Per agreement - alternating years - her other parent will claim her this year. Can I report what I paid for tuition?

No. You can only claim qualified education expenses on a qualifying dependent being claimed as such on your tax return. But the other parent can claim them, even though you paid them.
