Yes, you can.  However, you can only go back to 2013, the deadline to claim 2012 is gone.   Because you may get a refund, the deadline to claim it is Tuesday 4/18/2017 for 2013.  For 2014, 2015,  and 2016 you still have time to do so.  Now it is important to remember that the maximum deduction you may get is $2,500 and it is all dependent on how much you paid and your income.  So my recommendation is to do 2013 amendment first and if you are going to get a refund mail by Tuesday then complete the others.  To learn more about the deduction for student loans, please see the post below.  I have also included the link to amend your taxes.
