First you need to confirm your school is an eligible institution. An eligible educational institution is a school offering higher education beyond high school. It is any college, university, trade school, or other post secondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program run by the U.S. Department of Education.
Check the list at https://ifap.ed.gov/ifap/fedSchoolCodeList.jsp to see if your school is on it.
The IRS only allows the deduction of qualified education expenses paid to eligible educational institutions.
You should ask your school if it is eligible or use this link to check.
