You can adjust the amount of scholarship actually received as follows.

·       Type "form 1098-T" in the Search box, then select Jump to 1098-T.  

·       When you work through the screens, you will come to one titled Here is Your Education Summary.  

·       Scroll down to Scholarships/grants (for all schools). The amount listed here should be the amount of your scholarship on the 1098-T. Click Edit.  

·       Did [You] Receive a Scholarship or Grant in 2016? Click Yes, then Continue.  

Did [Your] Aid Include Amounts Not Awarded for 2016 Expenses? Select Yes, and enter the amount of the scholarship that was for 2017 expenses.
