Who Claims Tuition and Related Expenses?

I am a 33 year old single college student. My dad is assisting in paying for my college expenses. What type of credits are applicable, and who claims them?

If you are not your father's dependent, you are allowed to claim the tuition credit or deduction, even though he was the one who paid.  He is not allowed to claim them, unless you are his dependent.
