Can I claim the education credit for my child who graduated college in May 2017 and is still my dependent at age 23, according to the new tax reform for 2017?

Yes, you probably can take an education credit for your child in 2017.  If you have not taken the American Opportunities Credit for 4 years already and the other requirements are met, AOC may be available to you on your tax return.  If not, you may meet the requirement for the Lifetime Learning Credit.

Please see the attached TurboTax Comparison of the 2 education credits available:
