Tution fee transfer error

After my student daughter completed her return for 2018, the turbotax indicated "Amanda, the maximum amount available to transfer is $3,396.06". When I try to enter this amount into my own return (tution fee transfer section) it gives me an error that says "Maximum transferable amount for Amanda is $2,069.87". Why?

Tution fee transfer error

There have been some changes to the Tuition Credit on a Provincial level for Ontario and Saskatchewan for 2018 and New Brunswick as of 2017. Tuition is no longer a provincial credit for students in those three (3) provinces. 

Therefore, any Provincial amounts to enter the tuition transfer will not be available, as seen in previous years.
