If you were a degree candidate, include on line 7 only the amounts used for expenses OTHER THAN tuition and course-related expenses. For example, amounts used for room, board, and travel must be reported on line 7.I read this as: Scholarship + Grant - Tuition - Books - Fees - other school expenses = x.
Room, board, and travel are things you do NOT consider against the grant amounts. This may be different if they were integral to her degree program, though. In either case, what do you get for x with the above equation, without considering the room, board, and travel associated with her degree?
If it's negative, put zero, but that means that her scholly was LESS than tuition, fees, and books. If that's the case, then that's fine. But since you mentioned room and board, it's hard to tell. Any schol/grant money you use for room, board and travel DOES have to be reported. "Other school expenses" cited by upgrade should be just stuff that's required, like course materials or lab fees. Living expenses, you're on your own.At least that's my understanding.
