Am I a dependent?

I meet every criterion for adult student dependents except for being full-time for part of 5 months. For the calendar year 2023, I was a full-time student only from the end of October 2023 to January 2024. I took online courses for the majority of the year, but it's not through an official institution. Either way you slice it, it doesn't look like I count as a student. Am I correct?

Am I a dependent?

Yes, you are correct; you would not have been considered a full-time student in 2023.
