Yes, if you paid for educational expenses, then you should add the amount you paid as an educational expense. This is usually the amounts from your Form 1098-T, but you should double check your records to make sure the amount billed is the same as the amount you paid. You should enter your total amounts paid, but then also record any scholarships or grants you received (these are often reported in box 5 of your Form 1098-T). Enter all the required information and TurboTax will determine if you are eligible for an educational credit.
