American Opportunity Tax Credit is available only to students in their first four years of post-secondary education who are enrolled at least half-time in an eligible program.

The Life Learning Tax Credit is available to students at all educational and enrollment levels who are enrolled at an eligible educational institution.

Tax credits are based on the amount of qualified tuition and fees, less grants and other tax-free educational assistance and the taxpayer's adjusted gross income.
