My employer paid me 7500 for tuition reimbursement, however, it was taxed when I got the check. Do I still claim the whole 7500 as employer provided assistance?

No, you do not count that as tax-free employer-provided assistance - because you paid taxes on it.  At this point, it is YOUR expense and you can use this as your education expenses. Do not enter this amount in the employer-provided assistance box.
