If your daughter had less than $4,150 of income and qualifies per the requirements, you can claim her as a dependent.  In this way, you can claim the exemptions as well as any amount of Lifetime Learning Credit.  This would be a better result than if she files an independent return when she sound like she qualifies as your dependent.
