If your 1098-T shows a Tuition amount in Box 1 or 2 greater than Scholarship/Grants amount in Box 5, you could qualify for an Education Credit, if you meet the other qualifications.

Don't forget to add Books and Required Fees under Additional Expenses.

Here's info about qualifying for the credit to help you:
