Why isn't my name listed so I can enter my tuition expenses?

Menu Path: Personal > Taxpayer Information

On the Taxpayer Information screen, if you answered Yes to the question that asks if you can be claimed as a dependent on your parent's tax return, you won't be eligible to take an education credit or deduction. Your parents, or whoever claims you as a dependent, are eligible to claim the education credit or deduction for the tuition paid for you whether you or your parents paid the actual tuition.
