No. You have completed four years of post secondary education. You may be eligible for the less generous Lifetime Lerning credit or tutiion and Fees deduction

What if you only claimed the AOC once during your first degree? Or if you never claimed the AOC before. Are you able to claim the rest in your second degree?
