College workshop deductions

My daughter is attending college and majoring in Musical Theater.She flew to N.Y. from Ky. to attend a workshop to learn more about theater auditions and auditioned to receive pointers in front of a panel of theater directors.Can this be taken off as a college expense and if so how would I do this.Thanks

it depends no unless the workshop is mandatory requirement by the school. In general,required fees generally count as qualified educational expenses for any of the tax breaks for education. For example, if the school charges a mandatory student activity fee or technology fee, those costs count. Other optional fees are not qualified expenses because they are not mandatory
