Generally you can claim the qualified education expenses actually paid through personal funds or loans. Expenses paid with grants or scholarships do not count. Please note that if you can be claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return you do not qualify for an education credit. Instead, the person who claims you gets the credit regardless of who paid the expenses.
