Working on daughters ded/cred. she grad with an adv deg in July. the summry is worded as if she is still a stud, though she isn't. I entered 1095-C & 1098-T. she has a W2

If she attended school for at least one college period in 2018, she would be treated as a student for the 2018 tax year. If she attended at least part of at least 5 months, she could be claimed as your dependent as a student (if she meets the other requirements as well). 

The program will address the taxpayer (or dependent) as if it were the tax year, so if they were a student in 2018, they will be addressed as a student in the 2018 TurboTax programs. 

If she is your dependent, you enter the 1098-T into your TurboTax program. If there is a credit, you get the credit, if there is taxable income (from scholarships) the program will tell you how much the student needs to claim. 

If she is NOT a dependent, she enters the 1098-T and applies for a credit.
