Student activity fees are considered qualified education expenses if they were paid to the school as a condition of enrollment or attendance. 

To enter these expenses in Turbo Tax:

log into your Turbo Tax account

click on "take me to my return"

click on the "federal taxes" tab

click on "deductions and credits"

scroll down to "expenses and scholarships(form 1098T) and click on "edit"

when the "your education expenses summary" screen comes up, click "edit" next to the student's name

when the "here's your education summary" screen comes up, click "edit" next to the school name and tuition amount.

when the "Type in info from 1098T" screen comes up, scroll down to box 2. Underneath box 2, there is a link that says, "what if this isnt what I paid to the school?"  click on this link

After you click on the link, you will see an expanded version of the 1098T form. There is a shaded area between box 2 and box 3 that says, "enter tuition paid". You can enter the student fees in this box. However, the student fees should be in addition to the amount that is already in the box. So if the amount in the box is $4000 and student fees were $200, then total amount in this box should be $4200.
