Is my gas/milage for my unpaid clincals tax deductible?

In order to complete my degree I am required to complete 2 unpaid clincals, 8 weeks each with full time hours. I have very little choice in where I can go and therefore have been driving 45+ minutes there and back daily. Am I able to count any travel expenses (ezpass, gas) as tax deductible? What about my required uniform costs?

Sorry, but education credits do not include travel, mileage, meals or lodging.  As this is an unpaid clinical, it also would not include uniforms.

If the clinicals are a required part of the course curriculum, the uniforms probably qualify as "course materials". That means they are a qualified expense for claiming a tuition credit.
