The federal government provides two types of tax credits for educational expenses paid by you during the tax year. However, not all expenses you pay to the University are considered qualified expenses. In general tuition and fees that are directly related to your attendance and education are allowable. Room and board, insurance and other personal expenses are generally not allowed. You should review the IRS Publication 970 for more information — or you may consult your tax professional.
