Can I claim a dependant and my college tuition?

Yes, you can claim your college expense and all of your dependents on your return.

However, if you are a dependent on someone else's return, they claim all of your education credits.  

If a student is claimed as a dependent on another person's tax return, all qualified education expenses of the student are treated as having been paid by that person. Therefore, only that person can claim an education credit for the student.
