If I took Duel Enrollment as a high school student, does that mean I was a college student?

I'm not sure whether to mark myself as a college student or not since I only took a couple duel enrollment classes in the first semester of my junior year.

If I took Duel Enrollment as a high school student, does that mean I was a college student?

Yes, it does mean you are college student. However, dual enrollment students are not eligible for the American Opportunity Credit.  If the early college high school provides a college credit course, you may qualify for the Lifetime Learning Credit or Tuition and Fees deduction.

Also, if you are a dependent on someone else's return, you won't qualify for any education credits. If that's the case, you don't have to visit the education section at all.
