Yes, if you repaid the loan.

You can claim the interest deduction, if you meet the three requirements:

  1. You paid the interest
  2. You are legally obligated to pay it (co-signing counts)
  3. The student was your dependent, at the time the loan was used to pay for qualified educational expenses
