Hi, Here are some online resources that you may find helpful in locating the information and forms you need to take advantage of the tax credit for college...

First, start with the U.S. Department of Education financial aid websites:

http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/index.htm

If you need some background on the new tax credits, here are two related recent announcements from the White House:

April 2009:

June 2009:

I would also recommend that you visit Education.com's new special edition on college financing:
http://www.education.com/topic/college-financial-planning/
  
It includes a variety of articles that offer insights on how to find scholarships, loans and other creative ways to pay for college, as well as info about the U.S. Dept. of Education’s efforts to ease paying for college.

Good luck -- I hope you are able to secure the resources you need to complete your college education.
