Can't file taxes with Education Credits?

So I tried to file my 2012 tax return. Now I'm being told I can't file until mid-February because I have education credits. Has anyone else with education credits gotten this? If so, did you file anyway and what has your outcome been? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
Update: I have already read that. I wanted information from someone who has already filed with the Education Credits
