If you find out that you haven't claimed the credit, check your school receipts. You should have been sent a 1098-T form, from the school, which would have listed all the applicable charges like tuition, lab fees, etc, etc. From those charges, deduct any scholarships and grants which you may have gotten. Then, you'd work with what was left. If you didn't get the form(s), contact the school and have them re-send forms for each of the years attended.

The nice thing is that you'd be able to file amended returns, in order to claim the tax credit.
Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
The night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore .

Children are a message that we send
to a time that we will never see.
