My daughter has a w2 and a 1098T both combined less than $6300, does she still have to claim 1098T or can she just claim her w2 to get back taxes?

How old is your daughter?  Was she a full-time student in 2017?  Are you claiming her as a dependent?

You can claim your 20 year old full-time college student as your dependent.  The 1098T goes on YOUR tax return.

MY DEPENDENT HAD A JOB

If your dependent has a W-2 for his after-school job, summer job, etc. you do not include the information on your own return. You can still claim your child as a dependent on your own return.  He/she can file his own return for a refund of some of his withheld wages (he won’t get back anything for Social Security or Medicare), but MUST indicate on it that he can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.  (Supervise this closely or prepare it for him!)

If your dependent’s earnings were over $400 and were reported on a 1099Misc then he must file a return and pay self-employment tax for Social Security and Medicare.  You may want to use this version of TT for that:
