If you answered Yes to the question that asks if you can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's tax return on the Taxpayer Information screen, your name won't be listed as a student for the education credits or deduction.
You can't claim an education credit or deduction on your own return if you're being claimed as a dependent on someone else's return. Your parents, or whoever claims you as a dependent, are the ones who are eligible to claim an education credit or deduction for your education expenses. This is true, even if you're the one who actually paid the expenses.
