Course materials, books and school supplies are an eligible expense for the American Opportunity Credit  only, these expenses are NOT eligible for the Lifetime Learning credit. Course material expenses
are not included in box 2 of the 1098-T. You may add the expenses you incurred for books and school expenses to box 2 for the American Opportunity Credit only. 

This is clearly explained in the attached explanation sent to Omaha's Metro Community College students with the Form 1098T.  Also see Metro's website:
