Can I claim dependent's student loan interest

I am the parent, claiming my daughter as a dependent. She could not pay her student loan last year due to medical condition.  I paid all of her student loan because I am co borrower on this loan. Shouldn't I be able to claim the student loan interest paid?
This feature is pending. Thanks for your patience.

Can I claim dependent's student loan interest

Yes, if you are legally obligated on the loan, you can take the deduction for your daughter's student loan interest on your return.
